The Flaming Lips are a rock band from Oklahoma City, that formed back in 1983. For over 30 years, the group has been pushing the boundaries of music with their acid-tinged rock 'n' roll and psychedelic stage shows and soundscape events. Last month they dropped their fourteenth studio album, Oczy Mlody, and despite receiving more public attention than ever before, they refuse to conform.
Last year, 34 years into the game they saw a resurgence through their relationship with pop sensation and all around wild one Miley Cyrus — which came from her appreciation for their music. The Flaming Lips helped write and record her 'Dead Petz' album and appeared as her band for the Dead Petz Tour. However, as songwriter Wayne Coyne says, "Even with Miley, I feel like she has had more of an influence on us than we have on her."
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Wayne to discuss The Flaming Lips newest album, what his relationship with Miley Cyrus like right now, and how the Red Hot Chili Peppers helped them figure out how to behave on stage.
