Psychedelic rockers King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard released their ninth studio album on Feb. 24 via ATO Records in the United States and Flightless Records in their native Australia. They are on tour with a local concert at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, March 29. Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets to go!
Mind you, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard only released their first album, 12 Bar Bruise, in 2012, so nine albums in that time places them among the most prolific bands active at the moment. On top of that, the band vows to release a total of five albums in 2017, apparently beginning with Murder of the Universe.
Bandmates Stu Mackenzie (vocals, guitar, flute), Ambrose Kenny Smith (synths, harmonica), Cook Craig (guitar), Joey Walker (guitar), Lucas Skinner (bass), Eric Moore (drums), and Michael Cavanagh (drums) received positive reviews for Flying Microtonal Banana. For Pitchfork, Stuart Berman wrote, “[T]he Aussie armada thrive on the symbiotic relationship between governing principles and disorder. The result is psychedelic rock that plays like a pinball game — the action may be confined to an enclosed playing field, but it’s always moving, ping-ponging in unexpected directions and encouraging synapse overload.”
