OKLAHOMA CITY – Flaming Lips fans, you can breathe easy, the band is not breaking up.
However, that isn’t what their twitter account stated Thursday afternoon.
The band’s Twitter account was hacked.
The fake message stated, “We have sad news… we’ve broken up.”
According to the band’s manager, no one from the group posted the message, even as a joke, and it didn’t come from Warner Bros. Records.
The post was removed.
Lead singer Wayne Coyne posted a confirmation for fans on his personal Twitter account.
