Black Lips Announce Vimeo Contest

Black Lips have a lot of news lately, what with a new album, 200 Million Thousand, due for release on February 24 and a gigantic tour to follow, but the latest bit of news from the Atlanta-based garage rockers is all about what the fans can do.

The band has announced a video contest for 200 Million's first single, "Starting Over". It's a straightforward affair here. Direct a video for the track and hand it over to the band, who will judge accordingly and pick one winner. That lucky soul's video will be featured on the Vimeo homepage, and they'll also receive a 7" of the track "Short Fuse," as well as a signed copy of the new album.

Everything you ever wanted to know about the contest is here.
