Flaming Lips ready live record

Published: 2006-08-02
Oklahoma psych rockers the Flaming Lips are getting ready to release their first ever live album.

The live CD and DVD releases will be made up of snippets from two different shows. The first is the band's show at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl on July 23 touring behind their most recent record At War with the Mystics.

The second concert to show up on the band's upcoming live release has yet to take place but is planned for their hometown of Oklahoma City. According to Billboard at the hometown gig, "The plan is to dig out some older, more obscure material." The gig is to take place in September.

The record, on the other hand, will likely come out in 2007 as the band's bassist Michael Ivins told Billboard, "We never want to rush stuff out and say, 'Hey, look, it's out for Christmas.'"

Along with no release date, the new CD and DVD have yet to be titled.
