July 28, 2014 – (Burbank, CA.) – THE FLAMING LIPS have unleashed four new usually stunning shirts in their official online store, including a T-shirt that looks like an (almost) identical replication of Wayne Coyne’s actual entrails and vital organs. Well that’s what we were told anyway… This shirt required a top secret, extremely specialized printing process to make so please, do not ask us how it’s done. This is thee essential LIPS T-shirt to own this summer! Click here to have a look. Ah, but there’s more! Check out the very green Better Human design or the other lovely, Wayne Coyne original shirt, inspired by his The Sun Is Sick comic book in the vibrant red Taste Eye design. Speaking of The Sun Is Sick, the 2nd edition in the series is finally ready and available now in the shop and at THE LIPS tour merch stall. The adult-themed comic book is even more out there than the first editions so don’t delay. Have a peek at the cover of The Sun is Sick No.2.
