King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard announce new album ‘Murder Of The Universe’

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard and The Lizard WizardKing Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have announced their new album ‘Murder Of The Universe,’ which will be out on June 23rd via Heavenly Recordings. The album follows the release of ‘Flying Microtonal Banana,’ which came out in February this year. The album was recorded at Flightless HQ in East Brunswick, Melbourne Australia in early 2017 and produced by the band’s Stu Mackenzie.

The band have also unveiled an epic 13-minute film to ‘Chapter 3: Han-Tyumi And The Murder Of The Universe’ directed by long time collaborator Jason Galea.

Lit by thunderclaps and lightning, ‘Murder Of The Universe’ inhabits a sonic landscape of death, decay, ossification, fossilisation, rebirth. It is a place occupied by wandering shape-shifting beasts, bleeding skies, pools of blood, great fires and mushroom clouds; a planet rent asunder by conflict.

A disorientating experience, the album hinges on three distinct sections that rise from larval beds, and whose lyrics should be carved in stone, squeezed from moss, discovered in ancient runes. And all the while a passing cast of characters imbue the tale with both human and non-human emotions.
