News King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard announce three new albums

‘Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava’, ‘Laminated Denim’ and ‘Changes’ land next month.

Arriving next month, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced three new albums!

The first to drop will be ‘Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava’ on 7th October, followed by ‘Laminated Denim’ on 12th October and ‘Changes’ on 28th October.

Speaking about ‘Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava’, Stu Mackenzie says, “All we had prepared as we walked into the studio were these seven song titles. I have a list on my phone of hundreds of possible song titles. I’ll never use most of them, but they’re words and phrases I feel could be digested into King Gizzard-world.”

On ‘Laminated Denim’, Stu describes it as “an anagram of Made In Timeland”.

“I think of Changes as a song-cycle,” he adds. “Every song is built around this one chord progression – every track is like a variation on a theme. But I don’t know if we had the musical vocabulary yet to complete the idea at that time. We recorded some of it then, including the version of ‘Exploding Suns’ that’s on the finished album. But when the sessions were over, it just never felt done. It was like this idea that was in our heads, but we just couldn’t reach. We just didn’t know yet how to do what we wanted to do.”
