The Flaming Lips - Embryonic was recently named the #2 album of 2009 by James Montgomery of MTV News!
"The album on which the Lips take all the good will they've built up over the past decade and jettison it out into space, Embryonic is a dissonant, disturbing thing, all fuzzed-out guitars, churning low end and muttered, barely there vocals, with the occasional animal noise (courtesy of Karen O)..."

First we want to say THANK YOU to everyone in Portland! Especially those who participated in the making of the 'Watching The Planets' video!

Come watch the video and stay for the dance party!!! Music will be provided by the guys from Zwei Dekaden zu Spät on PRA (Portland Radio Authority).
It's 18 and up and early birds will get some killer swag! Be there with your clothes on! Please forward this to anyone you know who was at the shoot! Thanks again and we hope you have fun!

For the first time in the band's 26 year career, the Flaming Lips have scored their (our) first top 10 album. "Embryonic" debuts in the Billboard Top 200 this week at #8 and we couldn't be more thrilled. Wow!
I would just like to extend a most sincere thanks on behalf of everyone in the band....not just to the people who bought the record this week (though an extra special thanks does go to you), but to every Flaming Lips appreciator on the planet Earth. It's been an incredible 26 years, of which I am proud and honored to have been a part for the past 7, and we quite simply couldn't do what we do without you. I'm sorry if this sounds cheesy, but I am sort of in a state of shock right now and it really is the truth.
Again, from the bottom of all of our hearts, thank you! We hope to see you somewhere out there on tour over the next couple of years or at the March Of 1000 Flaming Skeletons in Oklahoma City this Saturday.....or anywhere, really. Wherever you are, you're always in our hearts.
