SEAN LENNON-PRODUCED NEW ALBUM SATAN’S GRAFFITI OR GOD’S ART? OUT NOW ON VICE RECORDS

JARED AND COLE AVAILABLE FOR SELECTED PROMO

 

Atlanta flower punk pioneers Black Lips today release the captivating video for album highlight “Crystal Night” following the release of Satan’s Graffiti or God’s Art? earlier this year through Vice Records. Front man Cole Alexander has called the song, and subsequent video, the band “showing love will always trump hate”.

Produced by Sean Lennon at his studio compound in upstate New York throughout 2016, the album is the group’s most musically evolved to date, while still staying true to their original blistering take on fuzzy, dirty rock n’ roll.

During the recording the band isolated themselves from the outside world, infusing the album with a focused liveliness similar to the spirit that brought them together in the first place. On Satan’s Graffiti or God’s Art? founding members Cole Alexander and Jared Swilley teamed with former guitarist Jack Hines (who played in the group from 2002-2004) and recent additions Oakley Munson on drums and Zumi Rosow on saxophone. The album also features contributions by Saul Adamczewski of Fat White Family and guest vocals by Yoko Ono.

As well as their headlining appearance at Reading & Leeds, the band have also announced a number of UK and European live dates, including an in-store and signing at London’s Rough Trade and a return to the capital in November to headline an always raucous Fluffer Pit Party.

Black Lips were born of DIY ethic, working their way from sweaty basement shows in Georgia to huge crowds at international music festivals (including a performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest that appears in Terrence Malick’s forthcoming film Song to Song) to tours in such far flung locales as India, Jordan, Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraqi Kurdistan, the United Arab Emirates and many more. Satan’s Graffiti or God’s Art? vindicates Black Lips for sticking it out through many years of shifting trends and buzz bands; providing a sonically captivating document that is as creatively unhinged as it is precisely executed, one of the rawest and most expansive albums in the a band’s storied history.
