An acid-bubblegum band with as much alTimty for sweet melo- dies as blistering noise assaults, their off-kilter sound, uncommon emotional depth, and bizarre history firmly es- tablished them as true originals.The Flaming Lips will be hitting the road in support of their thirteenth studio album, THE TERROR.
