June 9, 2014 – (Burbank, CA.) – Electric Würms is a prog-rock side project featuring THE FLAMING LIPS multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd on vocals, guitars, and keyboards with front man Wayne Coyne on bass, backed by Nashville psychedelic rock band Linear Downfall. Electric Würms will release a six-song album, Musik, Die Shwer Zu Twerk, on August 19th through Warner Bros. Records. This album will transport the listener into a new kind of transcendental orbit, unlike one might expect from THE LIPS alone. These six velvety compositions appear to be harvested from a higher bardo plane of sound yet, maintains a pleasantly familiar rock “experience” associated with The Lipsian oeuvre.

 

The first single from Musik, Die Shwer Zu Twerk is a cover of British prog-rock band, Yes’ “Heart of The Sunrise,” which will be released on June 9th, digitally through all participating digital retailers. The album will be available on CD, digital and vinyl formats. The limited edition vinyl album will pressed on Purple Dayglo vinyl. Cape not included but possibly implied.
