THE FLAMING LIPS
The Flaming Lips (Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd and Michael Ivins), formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1983 and have since become one of the most iconic, influential, unpredictable and vital forces in American rock music. During their tenure, their ever-evolving, GRAMMY Award-winning sound has become a genre unto itself and contains lush, multi-layered arrangements. Lyrically, their compositions reflect the light and dark in all of us and combined with bold experimental production that breathes life into their space-age-prog, punk pop that appeal to broad spectrum of music lovers around the globe. Known for their elaborate live stage shows The Lips have become such the ultimate live rock experience that Q Magazine and Rolling Stone named The Flaming Lips one of the "50 Bands to See Before You Die." Their reputation as canny songwriters & great performers have made The LIPS an actively sought out collaborative entity who have participated in numerous, oddly diverse recorded and live performances that include Yoko Ono, David Lynch, Philip Glass, Bon Iver, Lightning Bolt, Coldplay, Beck, Nick Cave, Erykah Badu, Thievery Corporation, Grace Potter, The Chemical Brothers, Jim James, Miley Cyrus and many, many more. At present, The Lips are working on a series of reissues of the early works and looking forward to their next studio opus. The Lips continue to tour in support of their 14th and current Warner Bros. Records studio album Oczy Mlody in 2018.
