The Flaming Lips Reach Career High

(Warner Bros.) The Flaming Lips have cracked the Top Ten on the Billboard top 200 Album charts for the first time with the release of the brand new Warner Bros. Records release, Embryonic.

The 12th studio album from Oklahoma City's Official State Rock Song authors was the week's second-biggest debut upon release on October 13, which starts at No. 8 with just under 32,000, giving the band their highest-ever chart entry. The Flaming Lips' last album, AT WAR WITH THE MYSTICS, debuted and peaked at No. 11 in 2006 with 48,000 in its first week.

Great news for LIPS fans and collectors: The deluxe double vinyl package will at last hit shelves on Nov 27. These beautifully packaged collections will be pressed on color vinyl (one blue and one yellow disc) and manufactured at Pallas Records, MFG, the world's premier vinyl pressing plant in Germany. Thinking of a European vacation? Good timing as The Lips will embark on a brief tour overseas this coming week. Confirmed dates are as follows:

Sat Nov 7 Concerthall Herning, Denmark
Mon Nov 9 Ancienne Brussels, Belgium
