After releasing the acoustic, micro-tonal infused track “Honey” back in July, Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have shared another new song, “Some of Us,” along with an accompanying music video. The song was written by guitarist Cook Craig and features vocals from Stu Mackenzie. The video, like most of King Gizzard’s filmed content, was made by John Angus Stewart, who also directed the band’s recent concert film, “Chunky Shrapnel”.

This Cookie penned, Stu sung song came together early this year as the world was slowly descending into madness, but before it was truly on fire,” wrote the band in an Instagram post about the song. The also hinted at the release of more new music on the horizon: “We’ve made heaps of tunes lately. Currently putting some sparkles on em. Can’t wait to show y’all before we go down in flames. King Gizzard were set to play two of their biggest shows to date this summer, headlining two nights at Red Rocks. Unfortunately, those were postponed due to coronavirus.

There is something about seeing heat in its raw form that is deeply disturbing. I think it’s got something to do with seeing the body broken down to it’s most mechanical function. It’s a not so gentle reminder that we are just meat, bone and blood. ”
