News: King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Announce Record and Tour

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced plans to release a new album entitled Omnium Gatherum via their own label. KGLW.  Preorders go up March 22.  They’ve also dropped an epic, 18-minute single called “The Dripping Tap” and booked a massive world tour kicking off March 19 as well. Tickets for this global psyche out are on sale now; click here for dates and gigs. 

Omnium Gatherum is quite the fitting title for the first King Giz double album featuring unreleased songs mixed in with brand new tunes. Lyrically, the themes are diverse, though the group’s concern for the ecological well-being of the planet remains a constant. Some tracks return to the synth-psych visions of Butterfly 3000, while others revisit the fevered thrash-metal attack Gizzard coined on 2019’s Infest The Rat’s Nest.

Stu Mackenzie states:

This recording session felt significant. Significant because it was the first time all six Gizzards had gotten together after an extraordinarily long time in lockdown. Significant because it produced the longest studio recording we’ve ever released. Significant because (I think) it’s going to change the way we write and record music—at least for a while … A turning point. A touchstone. I think we’re entering into our ‘jammy period.’ It feels good.”
