The end of 2013 brought some exceptional news for the new year: the Black Lips will return on March 18 with their seventh studio album, Underneath the Rainbow. We've already heard "Boys in the Wood," a swaggering blues groove indicative of the forthcoming LP's helping hands: Black Keys man Patrick Carney, and Charles Bradley's music director, Tommy Brenneck. While we don't have any more sounds to share just yet, the Atlanta crew has let loose a slew of new tour dates and their next record's cover, shot by revered British photographer Mick Rock (David Bowie, Queen, Iggy Pop). Check it all out below.
