Black Lips will release new album Satan’s Graffiti or God’s Art? on Vice Records. The album was produced by Sean Lennon and features guest appearances by Sean’s mom, Yoko Ono, as well as Saul Adamczewski of Fat White Family. You can check out first single “Can’t Hold On,” along with album art and tracklist, below.

The band will be on tour later this spring, playing Birmingham’s Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Saul of Fat White Family is also in The Moonlandingz, whose new album was also co-produced by Sean Lennon and also features Yoko Ono, and came out today. 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. Their latest album, Satan’s graffiti or God’s art? vindicates Black Lips for sticking it out through many years of shifting trends and buzz bands; a sonically captivating document that is as creatively unhinged as it is precisely executed, one of the rawest and most expansive albums in the band’s storied history.

Atlanta flower punk pioneers Black Lips have announced that their first album in three years, Satan’s graffiti or God’s art?, is set for release May 5th on Vice Records. 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.

Black Lips have a new album out today, Satan’s graffiti or God’s art?, and to support it they have a new video for the snarling “Can’t Hold On.” This is their first video to feature the band’s new lineup: founding members Cole Alexander and Jared Swilley, joined by former guitarist Jack Hines, Oakley Munson on drums and Zumi Rosow on sax.

And man, this one’s gleefully dark and trippy, and has a budget lower than The Blair Witch Project. Scorpions, skulls, wandering dogs, teething babies, police officers, spinning hands and mounds of suds are all common images in the clip. There’s a point where the band is playing in a circle of flames, and that probably doesn’t even crack the top 10 of preposterous things.

Alexander snarls about not being able to hold on to anything, and that’s what this Ian Cone-directed video feels like. Everything is coming apart at the seams. And in that fracturing, a wonderful mess has been made.
