    flaminglips600 Watch The Flaming Lips cover Devos Gates of Steel

    The Flaming Lips tend to be economical, which explains their latest video — a cover of Devo’s “Gates of Steel”. Now, this track doesn’t appear on any of their albums, it isn’t some new special 7″, and there’s no gimmick involved. They simply, as Stereogum points out, had time to shoot another thing after they finished their recent video for “Turning Violent” and this is the end result. Lighting directors should see this as almost orgasmic, at least for the style in which they handle the endless neon rays. Glitter pops up, too, because that’s just the lifeblood of Mr. Wayne Coyne, so prepare to get fabulous below.

    Tomorrow, they’ll return to the road for a tour that sprinkles throughout Fall. Consult their full itinerary below, which includes dates with Tame Impala.
