The Flaming Lips announce Boston show

, Staff

The Flaming Lips have revealed plans to continuing touring through the fall as they promote their brand new album, The Terror. The Oklahoma-bred indie rock favorites, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary, will make their way to Massachusetts for a performance at Boston’s Agganis Arena on Monday, September 30. Tickets for the show, which will also feature special guests Tame Impala, will go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster for $35 and $45.

The Terror, The Flaming Lips’ thirteenth studio effort, was released in April. Co-produced by the band and Dave Fridmann, the album was recorded at Tarbox Road Studios in Fredonia, New York and at Pink Floor Studios in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The video for lead single “You Lust” (featuring Phantogram) is streaming below.

“We’re deciding what to do with ‘The Terror’ because it’s something of a different mood,” explained frontman Wayne Coyne in an interview with Billboard earlier this year. “When I see videos of Flaming Lips shows, it’s a catastrophe of excitement — it’s light and confetti in your face. So we’re going to take a left turn and not do shows like that for a little while. It can be something else — some new version that we can yet again incorporate into this ever-moving thing that’s part of our 30-year path.”
