Black Lips set to become movie stars

They also add more dates to US tour

The Black Lips have signed on to star in a movie, set to begin production next summer.

The band will play a band in ‘Let It Be’, which is set during the late 1980s and based around the American underground post-punk rock scene.

In addition to well-known tracks from that period, the movie will also include new music written by the band.

Meanwhile, the group have added a few dates to their US tour. They are:

Atlanta Variety Playhouse (November 30)

Athens Georgia Theatre (December 5)

Charlotte Neighborhood Theatre (7)

Asheville Orange Peel (8)
