King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard announce new Album ‘Fishing for Fishies’
Australia’s favourite psyche band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have announced the impending release of their new album, Fishing for Fishies.
The record, which will be their 14th full-length to date and the first since release five full albums last year, will be out April 26 via their label Flightless Records.
The news follows the release of their first new music of the year in the shape of latest single ‘Cyboogie’. “We tried to make a blues record,” says frontman Stu Mackenzie. “A blues-boogie-shuffle-kinda-thing, but the songs kept fighting it – or maybe it was us fighting them. Ultimately though we let the songs guide us this time; we let them have their own personalities and forge their own path. Paths of light, paths of darkness. This is a collection of songs that went on wild journeys of transformation.”
