Aussies King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced the release of studio album number 15, Getintothis’ Lewis Ridley has the important info.
Melbourne seven-piece King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will return later this year with a brand new album, their fifteenth.
Infest The Rats’ Nest, released on Flightless Records on Friday, 16 August , is supposedly The Gizz’s hardest and heaviest album to date.
It comes just six months after the their latest album, Fishing For Fishes, and draws on the mid/late 1980s golden period of thrash metal – Metallica and Slayer as well as lesser-cited bands such as Exodus, Kreator and Overkill.
Infest The Rats’ Nest will see King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard take somewhat of a creative detour.
The track listing of the album is as follows:
1. Planet B
2. Mars For The Rich
3. Organ Farmer
5. Venusian 1
7. Venusian 2
The release of the album will also see the band embark on a tour of Europe, including UK dates, one being a return to Manchester.
On their UK leg of the tour, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will play:
30 September – Rock City, Nottingham
1 October – Barrowlands, Glasgow
2 October– The Academy, Leeds
3 October – Victoria Warehouse, Manchester
5 October – Alexandra Palace, London
