On June 7th, Black Lips released their sixth and greatest full length record Arabia Mountain, quickly working it’s way to the #1 spot on InSound and garnering a mounting avalanche of rave reviews, including a spot in Spin Magazine’s 24 Best Summer Albums. Possessed by an unparalleled ambition to entertain anything that moves, the band, already two months into their expansive world tour, are kicking off another run of tour dates that extends into August, culminating with an appearance at Chicago’s monolithic Lollapalooza festival.
