It's True: Sonic Youth Will Tour With The Flaming Lips


By: Spacelab Research Staff
Sonic Youth have announced that they'll play a set of dates with The Flaming Lips as the opening act. The dates will run through most of August with a few dates in September. Sonic Youth will also play a string of dates in July with Pearl Jam, and make a stop at Lollapalooza.

They're touring in support of their new album Rather Ripped, out in June on Geffen Records. The song Incinerate has been in the top 5 on Spacelab Radio, and continues to be a favorite. Sonic Youth is currently offering a stream of the album for previewing purposes through their web site.

In other Sonic Youth news, Thurston Moore has been tapped to curate this year's Nightmare Before Christmas festival on December 8th-10th. So far the lineup includes Sonic Youth, Iggy and the Stooges, and Bardo Pond, among other bands.
