Black Lips Tour Schedule

For years Black Lips have been known as much for their raucous live shows as for their punk fueled style of garage rock and if you have yet to see the band in concert now is the time to do so. Their on stage antics have landed them in trouble on more than one occasion but audience members never fail to have a good time. Black Lips are at the forefront of the garage revival that has taken over the punk and indie rock scene in recent years and, beyond that, are simply one of the best rock bands on the road today. They are constantly touring and have perfected their live shows over the years.

Shows in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Cleveland, Saint Paul, Omaha, Saint Louis, and Kansas City finish up their tour.


About the Band

High school friends Cole Alexander and Jared Swiley formed Black Lips in 1999 in Dunwoody Georgia with some friends they had met playing in a previous band. In 2003 they released their debut full length Black Lips! They quickly were developing a loyal fan base and started to gain some attention beyond their home state. The following year they released their second album We Did Not Know the Forest Spirit Made the Flowers Grow which was followed by 2005's Let It Bloom. By this time the band was receiving considerable attention and had been written about in major music magazines like Spin and Rolling Stone. In 2007 the band released Good, Bad, Not Evil which really thrust them into the spotlight. To date the band has released six studio albums: Black Lips!, We Did Not Know the Forest Spirit Made the Flowers Grow, Let It Bloom, Good, Bad Not Evil, 200 Million Thousand, and Arabia Mountain. Additionally they released on live album, Los Valientes del Mundo Nueveo, which was recorded at a show in Tijuana and produced by John Reis of Rocket from the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, and Hot Snakes. They are slated to release their seventh album, Underneath the Rainbow in 2014.


Breakthrough

In 2007 Black Lips released their first studio album for Vice Records, Good, Bad, Not Evil, the song featured a variety of hit songs including O Katrina and Bad Kids. The single Bad Kids has been featured in movies and become a fan favorite sing along at their live shows. The success of this album allowed the band to make their television debuts in the United States and the U.K. with appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and BBC's The Wall.


The Experience

You've heard about Black Lips for years and have seen their videos and listened to their songs. Perhaps you have even seen concert footage of them performing live, but now you get to experience that excitement in person. Finally, Black Lips emerge on stage and pick up their instruments getting ready to deliver a blistering live show. The opening chords of their first song ring out and the band begins bouncing around filling the venue with their unique brand of punk, blues, and garage rock. Their enthusiasm is contagious and the entire concert hall is bouncing around chaotically. As the night goes on Black Lips tear through hits like O Katrina, Dirty Hands, Boomerang, Bad Kids, and more. Black Lips are world renowned for their live shows and always have known how to work a crowd, their ability to connect with an audience is unparalleled in rock music. Finally when the show is over you will be fondly recalling the night for years and anxiously awaiting the next chance to see them in concert.


Trivia

In 1999 following the Columbine massacre, Cole Alexander and Jared Swilley were expelled from their school for representing what was perceived by school authorities as a dangerous subculture. Soon after they got together with other friends to form Black Lips. In 2002 their original guitarist Ben Eberbaugh was killed after his car was hit by a drunk driver, the album Black Lips! is dedicated to his memory.
