The Black Lips drop new album, tour

ATL 'flower punks', The Black Lips signed to Vice what seems like just yesterday and already their brand spankin' new album is out. "Los Valientes Del Mundo Nuevo" was recorded in Tijuana, Mexico by John Reis (Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From the Crypt, Hot Snakes)..."the result, Los Valientes Del Mundo Nuevo manages to capture the chaos of their live show (they kidnapped a Mariachi band to play with them for fuckssake) and pounds out some of the greatest hits of their past records." I couldn't agree more. The Black Lips have been a staple around Atlanta for awhile, a guaranteed good time soaked in beer and reverb. Head down to Criminal Records to pick this shit up, or buy it from Insound.
