King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have promised at least four albums this year, and the band seem to be right on target.

They have announced on Facebook their next album will be titled “Murder Of The Universe” and will be out on June 23rd, with pre-orders kicking off this Wednesday. The band presented the track on youtube “Han-Tyumi & The Murder Of The Universe (ATO/Flightless), which they described as a ‘Chapter’ of their next thing. In the great prog and psychedelic traditions, it’s your standard dystopian vision of the future with guitar wigouts, rolls of Deep Purple organ, with occasional outbreaks of spoken word, apparently from the viewpoint of the ‘confused cyborg’ of the title, adding a touch of Hitchhikers’ Guide to it. With me so far? Well done you. It’s The Flaming Lips on different drugs.

The album will mark the band’s tenth album after their ninth Microtonal Banana.  Here’s hoping the guys will round out this financial year with a chart-topper.
