Just this week the Flaming Lips announced a companion album to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, aptly titled Flaming Side of the Moon, crafted to be played simultaneously with Pink Floyd's 1973 album. And while some may have thought the new album was a prank considering their Twitter joke history, the Flaming Lips followed through and posted Flaming Side of the Moon on SoundCloud Sunday evening. Whether it's in the support of Flaming, 2013's The Terror, an unreleased forthcoming record, or no record at all, they've announced a tour, including a July 15 date in the First Avenue mainroom. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 4 at noon.
