Band also announce new single 'New Direction'

Black Lips have announced plans for a UK tour in September.

The band will hit the road for a four date jaunt which kicks off at the Fleece in Bristol on September 23 before wrapping up at London‘s Heaven. Last time the band played at the venue three years ago they clashed with security and the sound was pulled during their set.

Guitarist Cole Alexander also stripped naked and during one song played his instrument with just his penis.

Before they kick off their tour, Black Lips will also play the 1234 Festival on July 9 and release new single ‘New Direction’ on August 22.

Black Lips will play:

Bristol The Fleece (September 23)
Manchester FAC 251 (24)
Wirral Hubudu Festival (25)
London Heaven (26)
