King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, who last week released Sketches Of Brunswick East, the third of their five albums of 2017, and more recently announced details of their biggest U.K. show to date at London’s Brixton Academy in February 2018, have announced a European tour, including an Irish Date.The band also recently unveiled a video for new track Crumbling Castle, a taster from their forthcoming, yet to be announced, fourth album of 2017.
Just when you think you have King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard sussed they throw a curveball – in the wake of two albums released in 2017 already, including most recently the dystopian end-times concept album Murder Of The Universe, which tackled in no uncertain terms the rise of robots and the downfall of mankind, comes Sketches Of Brunswick East, an entirely altered beast.
Australia’s finest and most productive rock band have done this before, of course: while the world was still reeling from their 2014 breakthrough psych-punk masterpiece I’m In Your Mind Fuzz (2014) they casually released 2015’s expectation-confounding Paper Mache Dream Balloon (2015), a pastoral, sun-drenched acid-folk album.
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard are: Stu Mackenzie (vocals / guitar/ flute), Ambrose Kenny Smith (harmonica / vocals), Craig Cook (guitar / vocals), Eric Moore (drums), Joey Walker (guitar), Lucas Skinner (bass) & Michael Cavanagh (drums).
