Atlanta-based rock band Black Lips released their latest album, Underneath the Rainbow, this March with a

With it being their ninth full-length, the band decided to focus its sound following 2011’s Arabia Mountain by working with a producer for the first time during their career. Even though the band is mixing things up a bit, they’re keeping to their raw, gritty roots. The Black Lips are also known for their signature intense live shows, so catch them this Friday at noon on Different Radio.
