New Flaming Lips Album Due in April

Flaming Lips The Terror
Warner Bros.

April Fool’s Day won’t come soon enough for Flaming Lips fans, as the band has announced an April 1 release date for its next album, titled ‘The Terror.’ And from the way frontman Wayne Coyne talks about it, the Lips’ follow-up to 2009′s ‘Embryonic’ will live up to its dark and dreary name.

“Why would we make this music that is ‘The Terror’ — this bleak, disturbing record…??” Coyne writes in a press release. “I don’t really want to know the answer that I think is coming: that WE were hopeless, WE were disturbed and, I think, accepting that some things are hopeless… or letting hope in one area die so that hope can start to live in another?? Maybe this is the beginning of the answer.”

He continues: “We want, or wanted, to believe that without love we would disappear, that love, somehow, would save us that, yeah, if we have love, give love and know love, we are truly alive and if there is no love, there would be no life. ‘The Terror’ is, we know now, that even without love, life goes on… we just go on… there is no mercy killing.”

Got all that?

The nine-track disc, which was helmed by the Lips and their longtime co-producer, Dave Fridmann, will be preceded on Feb. 3 by the non-album track ‘Sun Blows Up Today. How cheery!
