Black Lips give update on upcoming fifth album Black Lips Tickets

Atlanta rockers hoping it will be out 'by the end of summer'

Black Lips give update on upcoming fifth album
Black Lips have given an update on their upcoming fifth album.

Working on the follow-up to 2009's '200 Million Thousand', the as-yet-untitled album is looking likely to be released this summer.

"I'm hoping we can get the record out by the end of summer," Ian Saint Pe told Billboard.com. "September-October when school gets back in. That's my prediction."

Currently on tour in North America, the group have been working with Deerhunter's Bradford Cox and Lockett Pundt, who took on producing roles in a recent studio session.

"I'm already digging what we've got," he explained. "I've read reviews where people say we haven't changed, but, man, the wheel ain't broke, don't fix it."

He added: "We do what we do. It'll sound like a Black Lips record; I can't say much more than that. It's got garage stuff, punk stuff, a little of that Atlanta hip-hop. It's just who we are. I think it sounds good."

Already previewing one track live called 'Raw Meat', Saint Pe added that other potential songs for the album include 'So Long To Carolina', 'Wildest Dreams' and 'This Is My World'.
