The Flaming Lips were one of the main musical forces behind Miley Cyrus’ messy, self-indulgent, occasionally great surprise album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, and it looks like they’re continuing to support the former Hannah Montana star on her magical journey of self-discovery. Cyrus is kicking off the new season of Saturday Night Live tonight as the premiere’s host and musical guest, and according to an Instagram posted yesterday by Lips frontman and Miley bestie Wayne Coyne, he and his merry band of psychedelic weirdos will be joining Miley on the show.
Earlier this week, Miley stopped by The Tonight Show to promote her SNL appearance, and, as Idolator points out, she revealed that the Flaming Lips will be joining her on a tour in support of Dead Petz later this year, and that she’ll be selling vinyl copies of the album on tour. (She also revealed that she made a custom bedazzled eyepatch to give to Fetty Wap, because of course she did.) Watch that interview below.
