The Flaming Lips are headed to Austin, having announced plans for two shows at this year’s SXSW festival — and the world premiere of ‘A Year in the Life of Wayne’s Phone,’ a film shot entirely on frontman Wayne Coyne’s iPhone. Additionally, the Lips have mapped out a slew of shows festival appearances and overseas shows, all in support of their forthcoming ‘The Terror’ album, which drops April 2.

The Lips are slated to rock SXSW on March 14 and 15, with the ‘Wayne’s Phone’ movie premiere — complete with a Q&A with Coyne himself — set for the day before. Following SXSW, the Lips head to South America for Lollapalooza Brazil, hit the roads of North America briefly with the Black Keys and then cross the pond for a handful of European dates.

Amid those aforementioned concerts, the Lips play the Beale St. Music Festival in Memphis and the Bottle Rock Festival in Napa, Calif. They’ll also stop by the Ed Sullivan Theater for a performance on ‘The Late Show With David Letterman.’ Get all the details below.
