Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne is getting ready to set off on a special tour of local record stores for what’s being called the singer’s “Record Store Tour.” The trek, which kicks off tomorrow (Dec. 19), will feature Coyne meeting fans and signing copies of the Lips’ debut EP, The Flaming Lips 1st EP, and the band’s reissue of their second cassette demo, The Flaming Lips 2nd Cassette Demo.
On tour, Wayne will be selling a limited-edition of the EP housed with a hand-crafted, custom-made solid chocolate skull. Each skull will include a golden coin that is redeemable as admission to any show the Flaming Lips headlines in the world. Leave it to Coyne to think up something that wild.
The Flaming Lips also have a new, six-song release out, Peace Sword, offering all new Lips music, as well as a 2013 full-length, The Terror.
