The Black Lips Team Up with Vivian Girls for North American Tour, Play Montreal and Toronto

The Black Lips Team Up with Vivian Girls for North American Tour, Play Montreal and Toronto
Last November, we reported that scrappy Atlanta psych-poppers the Black Lips were working on their sixth full-length record with super-producer Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Adele). While we haven't heard anything off the album aside from a couple micro clips in a video interview with Rolling Stone (see below), the band will soon be taking their new tunes on the road. The rockers have announced a spring tour that will surely premiere a whack of cuts from their next platter.

The tour starts off in Carrboro, NC on April 6 and wraps up in Baton Rouge, LA on April 30. Canadian fans will be happy to know that the group will be bringing their raucous, often controversial stage show to Toronto and Montreal as well. Considering their drunken track record, there's a good chance you're going to get vomited on, or at least get an eyeball full of dick. For the trek, the Black Lips will be joined on trip by well-behaved janglers Vivian Girls.

While it has yet to yield a title, a press release states that Black Lips' new record is set to be released sometime this summer on Vice Music.
