Info zu The Terror

Nach ihrer Neuinterpretation des Pink Floyd Klassikers The Dark Side Of The Moon und dem Kollaborations-Album The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends erscheint nun endlich mit The Terror das langerwartete neue Studioalbum von The Flaming Lips.

The Terror ist das 13. Studioalbum der fünfköpfigen Kapelle um Sänger Wayne Coyne. Wie auch schon bei vergangenen Produktionen wurde das neue Werk zusammen mit Dave Fridmann in den Tarbox Studios in Cassadaga, NY aufgenommen.

'Why would we make this music that is The Terror – this bleak, disturbing record…? I don't really want to know the answer that I think is coming: that WE were hopeless, WE were disturbed and, I think, accepting that some things are hopeless... or letting hope in one area die so that hope can start to live in another? Maybe this is the beginning of the answer', so Wayne Coyne.

Das neue Album ist eine wagemutige, eindrucksvolle und durchaus düstere Reise, die sich aus den fast 30 Jahren Bandgeschichte entwickelt hat. Dabei steht das charakteristische der Flaming Lips aber nach wie vor im Vordergrund: Ein Irrgarten aus akustischer Glückseligkeit, Dunkelheit und Licht, Freude und Schmerz sowie Chaos und Ordnung. Eben das altbekannte Motto der Band: die Erwartung an das Unerwartete ist Teil des wahnsinnigen Spaßes.

„Die Band geht radikal ihren Weg, ohne sich um Erwartungen zu scheren - und wird deswegen umso mehr geschätzt.' (Stereo)

„Wayne Coyne und die Flaming Lips veranstalten auch auf ihrem 13. Album in bald drei Jahrzehnten ein bewusstseinserweiterndes Rodeo.' (musikexpress)

The Flaming Lips are an American rock band, formed in Norman, Oklahoma in 1983.

Melodically, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles—such as "Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles", "Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)" and "Yeah, I Know It's a Drag... But Wastin' Pigs Is Still Radical". They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne's signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the "50 Bands to See Before You Die".

The group recorded several albums and EPs on an indie label, Restless, in the 1980s and early 1990s. After signing to Warner Brothers, they scored a hit in 1993 with "She Don't Use Jelly". Although it has been their only hit single in the U.S., the band has maintained critical respect and, to a lesser extent, commercial viability through albums such as 1999's The Soft Bulletin (which was NME magazine's Album of the Year) and 2002's Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. They have had more hit singles in the UK and Europe than in the U.S. In February 2007, they were nominated for a 2007 BRIT Award in the "Best International Act" category. By 2007, the group garnered three Grammy Awards, including two for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.

On October 13, 2009 the group released their latest studio album, titled Embryonic. On December 22, 2009, the Flaming Lips released a remake of the 1973 Pink Floyd album The Dark Side Of The Moon. In 2011, the band announced plans to release new songs in every month of the year, with the entire process filmed.
