Lightning Bolt Announce Tour, New EP

Today, noise rockers Lightning Bolt have come out from hiding to announce a string of August and September tour dates across the United States. With a recent Flaming Lips collaboration under their belt, they also plan on releasing a new EP of (according to the press release) “lost” material from 2008. While we have no clue what in 2008 would have caused material to become lost, the news of finding it is far more intriguing.

The new EP is titled Oblivion Hunter and is set for release during the Fall tour via Load Records. Check out the tour dates and “I’m Working at NASA on Acid” below!
