Black Lips

As discussed, Atlanta garage rockers Black Lips are releasing a new album, Underneath the Rainbow, on March 18 via Vice, and its single “Boys in the Wood” has just been given the video treatment. In true Black Lips fashion, it’s a wild, disgusting video and you might call it NSFW for its drug use, acts of violence and sex, and people covered in blood and urine. The video was co-directed by the ATL Twins and Matt Swinsky, and you can check it out below.

The band’s previously announced tour brings them to NYC on April at 17 Webster Hall with Natural Child (tickets), though you can also see singer Cole Alexander in NYC much sooner with his Old King Cole Younger project, which plays Baby’s All Right on Friday (1/24) with Beach Party (tickets). All upcoming Black Lips dates are listed below.

The Coathangers

The West Coast leg of Black Lips’ tour is being opened by The Coathangers, who will release their fourth album, Suck My Shirt, on March 18 via Suicide Squeeze. The band just revealed the first single from that album, “Follow Me,” which is a nice dose of garage punk and can be streamed below.

That stream, the Black Lips video, and list of tour dates below…
