King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard announce details of new album ‘Fishing For Fishies’

Their first new material since 2017's five-album run

Prolific Aussie psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced their new album ‘Fishing For Fishies’ due for release on April 26.

The band announced the record via Instagram, where they also shared the record’s album artwork. It’s the band’s first LP since they put out five over the course of 2017.

It follows a retro new video for recent single ‘Cyboogie’, which was released in January and billed as “an addictive taste of what’s to come from the band.”

The band have also recently announced a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace – tickets are on sale now and available here.

The Melbourne seven-piece released their last album ‘Gumboot Soup’ with just one day left to complete an ambitious mission to release five albums in a year, on December 30, 2017. It followed ‘Flying Microtonal Banana’, ‘Murder Of The Universe’, ‘Sketches Of Brunswick East’, and ‘Polygondwanaland’.

The latter release came in an unusual format, with the band releasing the digital, CD, and vinyl masters of the tracks, leaving fans to press their own copies and –if they wanted to – sell them for profit.

“I suppose with releasing a fair amount of other music this year, it felt like we owed people a present for being so generous and coming to shows,” frontman Stu Mackenzie told NME at the time. “But it also felt like a fascinating experiment for us to do, on a purely selfish level, just to see what would happen.”
