King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard, Australia’s psych rock heroes, have announced the rescheduling of their upcoming United States and Canadian tour dates.
In a message to their beloved
Jizzheads Gizzheads, the boys in King Gizzard apologised for the new shuffling of dates and reaffirmed their desire to return to the road. The band had to change around a number of gigs frequently over the past year as the world starts to readjust to live shows returning.
Most of the shows will still take place at previously announced venues, and tickets purchased for those shows will still be valid at the new dates. A previously announced New York show had to be cancelled, with the band currently attempting to find a new venue when the old one became uncomfortable with the large crew that follows the notoriously numerous collective.
Most of the details are still the same: fellow Aussie/folkie singer-songwriter Leah Senior will still be the tour’s support act, and the group will still play their previously hyped “marathon sets”, two of which will occur at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
The full King Gizzard experience is not complete without seeing the band live, where their effects-heavy arrangements pair with ear-splitting volume to create a sort of trance state, one that takes on a looser and more immediate power than is found in the band’s studio work.
