EMBRYONIC is #8 in Billboard this week!
posted by theflaminglips - Oct 20, 2009
For the first time in the band's 26 year career, the Flaming Lips have scored their (our) first top 10 album. "Embryonic" debuts in the Billboard Top 200 this week at #8 and we couldn't be more thrilled. Wow!
I would just like to extend a most sincere thanks on behalf of everyone in the band....not just to the people who bought the record this week (though an extra special thanks does go to you), but to every Flaming Lips appreciator on the planet Earth. It's been an incredible 26 years, of which I am proud and honored to have been a part for the past 7, and we quite simply couldn't do what we do without you. I'm sorry if this sounds cheesy, but I am sort of in a state of shock right now and it really is the truth.
Again, from the bottom of all of our hearts, thank you! We hope to see you somewhere out there on tour over the next couple of years or at the March Of 1000 Flaming Skeletons in Oklahoma City this Saturday.....or anywhere, really. Wherever you are, you're always in our hearts.
