The Flaming Lips have confirmed a string of Spring live concert experiences around the world in support of their groundbreaking new album ‘The Terror’, which will be released on April 2nd in the U.S. and on April 1st through Bella Union in Europe.

At last the rumors are, in fact, correct! The Flaming Lips will perform not once, but twice at this year’s SXSW Interactive / Film / Music Conference at Austin TX. Details are listed below. In Addition, Wayne’s “A Year In The Life Of Wayne’s Phone” film – shot entirely on his iPhone – will make its world premiere at SXSW and will screen at the Alamo Ritz Theater on Wed, Mar 13th, at 9:15PM. A special Q&A with Wayne will follow the screening.

After performing at SXSW in March, the band heads to Brazil to blow minds at Lollapalooza. They then hit the road for a series of dates with The Black Keys, a one-off with JEFF The Brotherhood, plus various festivals in California, Brooklyn, Paris, and Scandinavia. Throw in a pair of shows in London at the Roundhouse and you have the makings of some otherworldly nights out in your near future. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.
