The Flaming Lips have been teasing us for a while now with the promise of a new album, ominously titled The Terror. The album was set for release in the US on 2 April but the band have announced that the release has had to have been put back to 19 April (as far as we know, it’s still being released on the 1 April in the UK on Bella Union). But if you can’t wait until then, the band have put a recording of their SXSW set, which consisted of an entire track by track performance of the new album, up on Soundcloud. Not only did their set showcase The Terror in its entirety, but also showed off a spectacular new live show featuring all sorts of lasers, streamers and giant babies. Pretty much what you’d expect from The Flaming Lips.
