Famously prolific, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are living up to their reputation with a slew of new announcements today. First up, they’ve shared details of their next album - ‘The Silver Cord’, which will be released on 27th October via KGLW. A triple-header of lead singles (‘Theia’, ‘The Silver Cord’ and ‘Set’) are out now, hinting at the rock band’s purposeful foray into the world of electronics.
In a first for King Gizz, ‘The Silver Cord’ album will be available in two different versions: one as a condensed project of seven hook-laden, chorus-centred tracks; one as a hyper-extended, epic volume of remixes which the band has said is “testing the boundaries of people’s attention spans when it comes to listening to music”.
Watch the official video for ‘Theia / The Silver Cord / Set’ below.
In addition to all that, fresh from topping the bill at End of The Road this summer, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have also just been revealed as the headliners for Wide Awake Festival 2024, London’s now-annual celebration of new and alternative music.
