The EP will be comprised of three brand new recordings from EMBRYONIC: “Convinced Of The Hex,” “The Impulse,” and “Silver Trembling Hands,” followed by three additional rare B-side tracks selected by the band themselves. That same ticket buyer will also receive an official live LIPS’ digital download bootleg of the show they attend. Leading online distribution company Basecamp Productions is facilitating the production and delivery of the live music.How it works: Each fan who buys a ticket will receive a special code that allows them to get their music from THE FLAMING LIPS website: www.flaminglips.com.
