Black Lips @ Brooklyn Bowl 3/23/2010 (more by Gabi Porter)
Black Lips are gearing up for the release of their new as-of-now untitled LP via VICE with a string of April and June U.S. tour dates. This time around, the Atlanta garage-rockers have employed super-producer Mark Ronson to work on the record. Although this seems like a strange combination, Ronson is in-fact a fan of the band and has worked alongside VICE on The Creators Project.
Black Lips will be part of the punishing lineup offered by The Bruise Cruise, and then they'll hit the road with the recently reunited Vivan Girls for most of April. Both bands will be playing at Chicago's Logan Square Auditorium on April 22nd. Tickets are on-sale now.
