Electric Wurms, the side project of Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne and Steve Drodz, have released a new song.
“The Bat” is set to feature on the Wurms’ debut album, Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk, slated for release on the 18th of August via Bella Union.
The band comprises Coyne and Drozd, along with Charlee Cook, Chance Cook, Will Hicks and Dom Marcoaldi of Linear Downfall. Revealing the lineup back in June, Electric Wurms said: “It all began in the 70s when someone invented the right kind of acid that could make you fly. Overly-optimistic freaks began flying into outer space in spaceships made of futuristic super-metal – but before long they didn’t even need ships. They became the ships, and called themselves Electric Wurms.”
“Before they died they sent back to Earth a sonic bible of discoveries and failures. Two groups of determined musicians and weirdo thinkers set forth to decipher its message.”
