Did you know that The Flaming Lips haven’t released a proper studio album since 2009's Embryonic? Yeah, we were shocked by that too. Guess we got distracted by record-breaking concerts, blood vinyl, and naked Amanda Palmer/ Erykah Badu. Regardless, their record-free streak will end on April 2 with the release of The Terror. Apparently, the album is going to be quite a doozy. (That's the album art above)

“Why would we make this music that is The Terror—this bleak, disturbing record...??,” says Wayne Coyne via 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. 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.”


The Terror:

Look...The Sun Is Rising 
Be Free, A Way
Try To Explain 
You Lust 
The Terror 
You Are Alone 
Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die 
Turning Violent 
Always There...In Our Hearts
