On Monday The Flaming Lips Announce New Album and Super Bowl Ad was a top story. Here is the recap: The Flaming Lips have set an April 2nd North American and April 1st European release date for their new studio album, The Terror.
The album was co-produced by the group and Dave Fridmann at Tarbox Road Studios. Wayne Coyne had his to say about the title, "Why would we make this music that is The Terror - this bleak, disturbing record? I don't really want to know the answer that I think is coming. Maybe this is the beginning of the answer."
"If we have love, give love and know love," Coyne says, "we are truly alive and if there is no love, there would be no life. The Terror, we know now, that even without love, life goes on...we just go on...There is no mercy killing."
