The album will be made available online for a limited-time only immediately after Wednesday night’s show through Monday, September 21. “Embryonic” will be released on Tuesday, October 13.

The Mountain Goats are slated to make their late night television debut on “The Colbert Report” on Tuesday, October 6 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. In concurrence with their performance, ColbertNation.com will stream their upcoming album “The Life of the World to Come.”
“Embryonic” is The Lips’ 12th album and will be released by Warner Bros. Records on Tuesday, October 13. This marks their first full studio set in three years following their Grammy Award-winning “At War With The Mystics.” “Embryonic” was recorded in Fredonia, NY and Oklahoma City, OK with studio whiz and general co-conspirator
Dave Fridmann and just may be their most sonically adventurous and compositionally vernal form of musical expression ever. For more info, visit www.flaminglips.com.
The Mountain Goats are comprised of
Peter Hughes (bass) and
Jon Wurster (drums). On Tuesday, October 6, 4AD is set to release the band’s sixth album “The Life Of The World To Come.” Less a profession of religious faith than an immersion in Biblical poetry and imagery, the songs on the album take their names from verses that informed or inspired them.
