The Black Lips, garage punk trailblazers, transition from austere country pioneers to Lynchian surrealists, reshaping the history of 21st-century rock ‘n’ roll. Their album ‘Apocalypse Love’ defies musical conventions, weaving tales of Soviet synths, Benzedrine stupors, coups, stolen valor, destruction, and creative quicksand use. Prolific touring and releases over decades led them to unprecedented venues and festivals. Their evolution, marked by the 2020 country album ‘Sing In A World Falling Apart,’ showcased newfound maturity. Formed in 1999, their journey includes hit albums like ‘Good Bad Not Evil’ (2007), featuring diverse lineups and notable producers.
