Black Lips - Short Fuse

Amidst fall-out from an abruptly canceled Indian tour -- the Lips ran into a spot of trouble over the weekend while making their touring debut in the great nation of India. Turns out on-stage nudity doesn't go over so well and got the band booted from stage, and essentially chased out of the country. -- Atlanta-based madmen The Black Lips have premiered yet another song from their highly-anticipated follow-up to 2007's Good Bad Not Evil.

"Short Fuse," the second track released from 200 Million Thousand (due February 24th via Vice Records) landed early praise from KEXP, Pitchfork and a host of others. As Stereogum notes, it draws on "state-mates R.E.M.'s jangly salad days in the verse, with plenty of weird whooshing space sounds to keep tight to their ‘flower-punk' self-descriptors." Hear for yourself below.
