The Flaming Lips will be releasing their 15th studio album ‘The Terror’ in the second quarter of this year.

Lips singer Wayne Coyne says the new album will feature “horrible creepy songs” fuelled by band member Steven Drozd’s recent battle with substance abuse.

The title refers to “finding the answer,” says Coyne.

The Flaming Lips and The Black Keys are about to head out on tour together and have released the first four dates of the tour starting in Kansas City in April.

Confirmed dates are:

April 28, Kansas City, Sprint Center
April 30, Pittsburg, Consol Energy Center
May 2, Atlanta, Aaron’s Amphitheatre
May 3, Nashville, Bridgestone Arena
