In his own formidable style, Wayne Coyne introduces the band to the TikTok masses… “Where are we?” voice from the side… “We’re on TikTok”… Wayne, “What is a TikTok?… I’ll Google it? What is a Google?…Believe me it’s true The Flaming Lips are now on TikTok”…
This year the band have celebrated the 20th anniversary of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots with a five-LP/six-CD boxset as well as a series of coloured vinyl EPs. The latest of these, ‘The Hypnotist’ which was released on pink vinyl last week. Other recent vinyl releases include two sought-after fan favorite EPs. ‘Fight Test’ (on Ruby Red Vinyl) and ‘Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell’ (Glow In the dark Green Vinyl) are available on limited edition vinyl now. In addition, the band have been playing sold out shows through the US.
With their music appearing in some of the biggest shows and films of the year including Apple TV’s flagship show – Ted Lasso, and unquestionably 2023’s biggest movie blockbuster Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 – the band’s music has been opened up to a whole new audience and now it’s time for that audience to see the unique world behind the music of The Flaming Lips and joyous mayhem of Wayne Coyne and their live shows.
On 22 June 22, the band will also be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their sixth studio album, Transmissions from the Satellite Heart. The album features the singles Turn It On, and the celebrated She Don’t Use Jelly, which reached number 55 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and also became a top-30 hit in Australia.
