King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard are the cover stars of the October 2022 issue of NME Australia magazine

Also featuring Suzi, Pinkshift, The Terrys, Jamie Lee Curtis and more – here’s how to get your copy

King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard are the cover stars of the NME Australia October 2022 issue. 

The cover story arrives ahead of ‘Changes’, the last of a trilogy of records the Melbourne psych-rockers are releasing in October alone, and follows ‘Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava’ and ‘Laminated Denim’ earlier this month. In our interview, the band chat with NME’s Josh Martin from their US tour about returning to the road, their current jam band era, and staying as prolific as ever.

“We make the music and if we’re super pumped on it, it’s ready to be put out,” says drummer Michael Cavanagh. “Plus, if something is shit and no one likes it, you just put out another one the next month.”
