The Flaming Lips - "Gates Of Steel" video

Last week, the Flaming Lips shared their video for “Turning Violent,” a song from their new album The Terror. At that same session, they also recorded a video for their cover of Devo’s Freedom Of Choice oldie “Gates Of Steel,” which turns the original song into an inward-looking psych-rock freakout. The cover doesn’t appear on any of their records or anything; they’ve just shared it to promote their forthcoming tour with Tame Impala. Check out the video and the tour dates below.
