BLACK LIPS ANNOUNCE WORLD TOUR WILL EXTEND TO THE MIDDLE EAST
FLOWER PUNK PROGENITORS HEADING ON TWO WEEK TOUR OF EGYPT, IRAQ, JORDAN, AND MORE
The notorious flower punk quartet Black Lips, in an ongoing attempt to leave no stone unturned in their effort to spread their music globally, are treading a path few Western bands have traveled with a run of dates planned for the Middle East this Fall. “We want to play everywhere on the planet, and the opportunity came up. We couldn’t say no,” states band bassist and vocalist Jared Swilley. “Anywhere that we haven’t been excites us. Not many western bands have toured the region and to be one of the first is amazing. Adventures are the best.” With tours in Australia, Thailand, Portugal, India, under their belts, the band are looking to expand their horizons and spread their message of peace, fun, and rock and roll as far as it will go. “People like music and having fun and I think that’s pretty universal,” adds Swilley.
