Black Lips: blues, rock, doo-wop and punk mashup
Hailing from the Peach State, quirky punk rockers the Black Lips have garnered a cult reputation and fanatic following off the back of their unique sound and wild antics. Known principally for their wicked live performances – including nudity, electric R.C. car races, and flaming guitars – the group have also amassed a catalogue of exciting albums; with Let It Bloom (2005) and Arabia Mountain (2011) seeing them transform into an alternative act of distinction and longevity.
Back with eighth album Satan's Graffiti or God’s Art? in 2017, watch this space for the latest tour information and buy Black Lips tickets at StubHub.
Black Lips: unpredictable garage rockers who put on a hell of a show
Guitarist Cole Alexander and bassist Jared Swilley formed hell-raising outfit the Black Lips in their teens in home town Atlanta, Georgia. After pairing with drummer Joe Bradley and guitarist Ben Eberbaugh, the group were set to tour after the release of their first 7'' when catastrophe hit and Eberbaugh was killed in a car crash. Believing that the guitarist would have wanted them to continue, the three remaining members decided to carry on regardless and released their eponymous debut album in 2003.
Mashing the genres of punk, blues and country, they cemented their reputation as one of the wildest new American acts by treating fans to crazy live performances that included vomiting, chickens, urinating, fireworks and nudity – not necessarily in that order. Despite frequent media attention surrounding their antics, Swilley said: "It doesn't seem all that crazy to me. It’s not like we have ever done a human sacrifice on stage or anything like that."
Over the years, their collection of self-styled 'flower punk' albums have made them a cult proposition in the US and beyond – with the boundary-pushing group regularly touring in countries where punk music is unheard of. Their seventh album Satan's Graffiti or God’s Art? brought a welcome slice of Southern-friend garage punk back to the music scene in 2017, with the band likely to put on more of their famously tumultuous live shows in 2018.
