One of King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard’s most notable successes was the record Nonagon Infinity. Released over a year ago, it was the group’s eighth record, and since its release, the band have somehow managed to find time to release two more records,

With the release of their second album of the year “Murder of the Universe” it seems King Gizzard are already getting nostalgic as they travel back to the heady days of “Nonagon Infinity” for their latest video as they give ‘Invisible Face’ a brand new clip.

A combination of live action segments with the kind of animation which best befits an 80’s children’s TV show, and is therefore fucking incredible, makes this video one of the better ones floating around this week.

Jason Galaea and Joel Melrose are behind the brilliant visuals which also keep the coloured robes which have started to appear around the King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard camp and also befits another children’s TV show by the name of; Power Rangers. And when you think about it, is there another band you could see fighting and defeating someone named Lord Zedd?.

The clip has all you need snakes, dark landscapes, jet planes falling form the sky, the whole shebang, really. So sit back, get psyched and watch this brilliant video for ‘Invisible Face’.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard finally got sick of fans asking them when they’re going to release another album already, because they finally pulled their fingers out and are about to drop album number eight, Nonagon Infinity, on 29th April.

After dropping the largely acoustic Paper Mâché Dream Balloon last year, the band revealed their eighth album would instead be an ambitious tribute to the heyday of heavy metal, with influences like Slayer and Motörhead and they’ve just unveiled the LP’s latest single.

After whetting our appetites with the raucous, fuzzed-out ‘Gamma Knife’, the band premiered ‘People Vultures’  accompanying the track, which is a similarly fuzzed-out but far more brooding affair than its predecessor, with a whacked-out but prudent statement.
As King Gizzard frontman Stu Mackenzie explained :

“Our blue planet is parched and cracks are forming underfoot and the sweat drips from our collective temple onto the citrine sand and a feathered doom encircles us from above and there’s a pulsing in our breast telling us there ain’t nothing any mere mortal can do when the sun retreats and blackness sets in. Call upon God to deliver us from our peril.”

In other words, ‘People Vultures’ is a raw meditation on the impact we meddling humans are having on the planet, with gripping lyrics like, “People vultures crowding at my door, parasites are eating even more” sung over a menacing guitar and organ interplay.

The band premiered ‘Gamma Knife’ last month alongside pre-orders for the vinyl edition of the new album. Just 1,500 copies were available for pre-order and the band managed to sell every single one in less than two hours, forcing them to release another 1,500 limited edition vinyl copies.

In addition to the healthy record sales, the band were also chuffed to get props from none other than Godfather of Punk himself Iggy Pop when the rock icon played two cuts from the band on his BBC Radio show, even offering up some kind words of appreciation for the band.

After dabbling with Jazzy rock sounds and gentle acoustics, Australia’s King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are back in hyperactive psych mode on their new album “Nonagon Infinity”, which will be out via ATO on April 29th. The album was recorded in Brooklyn at Daptone Studio . It also marks what they are calling the world’s first “infinitely looping” album, meaning that when you listen to it digitally on repeat, the final song flows seamlessly into the first track on the album. (All the songs segue together, apparently.) Maybe the vinyl will have a locked groove at the end of each side? We shall see. Until then check out the album’s first single, “Gamma Knife,” below.

The new album will be out right before the start of King Gizzard’s spring tour, which kicks off at  The Austin Levitation and hits NYC for a headlining show on May 14th at Bowery Ballroom with tourmates (and fellow Aussies) The Murlocs, and then opening for Mac DeMarco on his tour

 

The hyper-prolific King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have unleashed the first sonic preview of their “super heavy” new album Nonagon Infinity.

The genre-hopping Melbourne septet have shared a trailer for the record featuring footage of the band tearing through new material live as an ominous voice intones hectic song titles like ‘Robot Stop’, ‘Gamma Knife’, ‘People – Vultures’, and ‘Evil Death Roll’.

The clip confirms there are five more tracks on the album, which is due for release on the band’s own Flightless Records this April, and gives a sneak peek at the cover art: the same devilishly complex hexagram design the band shared on socials earlier this week.
