Black Lips may still be in the middle of a European tour, but they are already laying out their plans for 2020 with a new album and a tour to go along with it.

The tour will kick off in late January and include stops in Cambridge (Tickets), Brooklyn (Tickets) and Asbury Park (Tickets). Select presales are currently available with tickets going on sale to the general public on Friday, Nov. 15.

In 2017, the Black Lips worked with Sean Ono Lennon on Satan’s graffiti or God’s art?, and earlier this fall, they released the mixtape Coming to Your Country, described as a collection of "unheard home studio recorded offcuts and unreleased music old and new." 

Their upcoming, ninth studio album, Sing In A World That’s Falling Apart, will be released Jan. 24 — just in time for their tour. The album will be available on vinyl and CD. The album is notable for having been recorded directly to two-inch tape, giving it a more lo-fi sound in line with the band's roots. The band recently released two singles from the album, with "Odelia" and "Gentleman," both of which have some country twang to them.
