PRESS RELEASE #1
THE FLAMING LIPS RELEASE FLAMING SIDE OF THE MOON
March, 31st 2014 – (Burbank, CA.) – THE FLAMING LIPS continue to explore the rich world of PINK FLOYD with their new digital release, FLAMING SIDE OF THE MOON.
Designed as an immersive companion piece to the original 1973 album, DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, listeners are encouraged to listen to the new LIPS album while listening to DARK SIDE at the same time. FLAMING SIDE OF THE MOON was also carefully crafted to sync up perfectly with the 1939 film, THE WIZARD OF OZ. For ideal listening conditions, fans are encouraged to seek out the original Alan Parsons’ engineered quadraphonic LP mix of DARK SIDE, but it will work with the album on any format. Available now through all participating digital outlets.
A limited edition 100 vinyl copies will be distributed to friends and family of THE FLAMING LIPS.
Much more LIPS information to be announced soon.

PRESS RELEASE #2
Wayne will be selling an extremely Limited Edition version of the EP which is housed with a hand-crafted, custom-made solid white chocolate skull. Naturally, it is anatomically correct and life-sized. Would you expect anything less? Each skull contains a special Gold Coin that is redeemable as admission to any headline show by THE FLAMING LIPS in the world.
As previously announced, this product still contains quite a substantial amount of high-quality, gourmet white chocolate accompanied by the main course: A generous earful of the very earliest music created by THE FLAMING LIPS in their original incarnation and pressed onto color vinyl. A feast for the senses, we’re pretty sure you’ll find this exclusive item delicious and satisfying on every level.
The Flaming Lips 1st EP will be available as a limited edition 12-inch on green vinyl and signed by Coyne. The last time this recording was available on vinyl was in 1986. It was originally recorded in two sessions at Benson Sound in 1984 and released on the group’s homemade label Lovely Sorts of Death Records. This edition has been remastered by LIPS bassist Michael Ivins and given a reimagined cover by freak artist Charlie Immer.
Don’t forget that THE FLAMING LIPS’ current six-song set, Peace Sword, featuring all new Lips music, is out now, along with their current album, THE TERROR.
