Wayne Coyne, lead singer for seminal rock band The Flaming Lips, will be taking a short solo tour of east coast record shops from February 8 through February 11.

The tour will start on February 8 with two New York stops, one at Other Music in Manhattan at 11 AM, and the other at Rough Trade in Brooklyn at 4 PM. Coyne will also make stops at Newbury Comics in Boston, MA on February 9, a.k.a Music in Philadelphia, PA on February 10, and Sound Garden in Baltimore, MD on February 11. Coyne did a similar run of dates late last year in the midwest.

During this mini tour, Coyne will be selling an “extremely limited edition” re-issue of The Flaming Lips’ very first EP. According to a press release posted on Brooklyn Vegan Monday, “The Flaming Lips 1st EP will be available as a limited edition 12-inch on green vinyl and signed by Coyne.” If that wasn’t enough, the vinyl will be “housed with a hand-crafted, custom-made solid chocolate skull; anatomically correct and life-sized, of course.” The package will also contain a gold coin that will be good for “admission to any headline show by The Flaming Lips in the world.” Originally recorded in two days at Benson Sound in 1984 , the EP was last printed on vinyl in 1986 for the band’s Lovely Sorts of Death Records, and features Coyne’s brother on lead vocals.

The solo tour will follow two more New York appearances for the Flaming Lips. Tonight, The Flaming Lips are set to play the highly publicized Amnesty International concert at the Barclay’s Center. The band will also make an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday for Beatles week, celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first U.S. television appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.

The limited edition EPs will only be available during the record store tour. For more information about The Flaming Lips, visit their website.
