Undeterred, the band jumped at the chance to become the first Western punk band to tour another notoriously conservative continent, the Middle East, just a few years later. “It was important for a number of reasons,” Swilley says of the tour.
“We’ve always wanted to push boundaries of where we go. D, oppositional defiance disorder.” This time, their shows went off without a hitch, and Black Lips played shows for crowds in Jordan, Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraqi Kurdistan, and the United Arab Emirates in 2011 in support of that year’s release of their record , produced by Mark Ronson.

We were very far from civilization, and we were all living at the studio.We weren’t going home to our own beds every night; that was our whole world, 100% of the time,” says Swilley of the experience.According to Swilley: “The first few shows, we were being really reserved because we didn’t want to offend anyone, but they kept telling us to do what we wanted...I guess “do whatever you want” didn’t include kissing each other, and I think Cole mooned the crowd, which is a huge no-no.
