Black Lips + King Khan + BBQ = the Almighty Defenders

Ever since that whole debacle went down with the Black Lips having to flee India to avoid going to jail, I've been getting daily phone calls from the Mighty Hannibal asking me if I know anything about the Black Lips and King Khan teaming up to cover one of his songs for a new record they recorded while exiled in Berlin.

The answer has been a categorical no until yesterday when Vice announced that it will be releasing the self-titled debut LP by the Almighty Defenders, a new collaboration between the Black Lips, Khan and his longtime cohort BBQ, or as his friends call him Mark Sultan.

It's important to note that no track list has been revealed yet, but Hannibal assures me that they've covered what he calls a "bad ass damn version" of his song "I'm Coming Home."

"They really did it up right and it teaches me something about my own song," Hannibal says.

The album, according to Vice, is "brimming with soul, earnest shouts, cries and hand-claps over post-modern gospel-rock anthems." The whole thing was recorded at Khan's Moon Studios and will be released on LP and digitally via Vice Records on Tues., Sept. 22.
