Admittedly feeling not so much prolific as just more ambitious, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne tells Billboard.com his alternative-psychedelic band is planning a late summer street date for its first double album, which is a follow-up to 2006 effort "At War with the Mystics."
After weeks of controversy and uncertainty, Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry is scheduled to sign an executive order tomorrow (April 28) that names the Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" as the official rock song of Oklahoma.
The Flaming Lips are known for their outlandish stage shows, which can involve fake blood, mock UFOs, giant bubbles and scores of people jumping around in animal costumes. Now, the group is hoping to bring that sensibility to Broadway with a musical based on its 2002 album "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots."
