The Flaming Lips have announced plans for a summer tour that will stop at Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion on Sunday, August 30. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $29 to $49, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Explosions in the Sky will open the show, as will fellow Oklahoma rockers Stardeath and White Dwarfs.

The always eclectic and thoroughly entertaining live band will be touring in support of their forthcoming double-album, Embryonic. The new release, which has no official release date set, will be their first full studio set in three years following their Grammy Award-winning At With With The Mystics. Embryonic, The Lips’ 12th album, was recorded in New York and their hometown of Oklahoma City with produce Dave Fridmann. According to the band’s press release, the new material is their "most sonically adventurous and compositionally vernal form of musical expression ever."

In appreciation for their years of faithfulness, The Flaming Lips will offer fans free music with tickets to band’s summer show. With every concert ticket bought online, fans will receive a free digital EP allowing comprised of three brand new recordings from Embryonic ("Convinced Of The Hex," "The Impulse," and "Silver Trembling Hands") and three additional rare B-side tracks selected by the band themselves. Additionally with each ticket, fans will also receive an official live Flaming Lips’ digital download bootleg of the show they attend.
