Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have an audacious album release plan for 2017. In February, they dropped Flying Microtonal Banana and announced that they plan to follow up that record with four more LPs in 2017. Yes, four.
The next installment in this series is the epically titled Murder of the Universe that drops on June 23. There’s no single from album number two yet, but there’s an appropriately ominous and trippy video for Murder of the Universe that talks of new worlds replacing old ones and memories being blown up in the mushroom clouds. If everything on the album is as intense as this clip’s one minute, it’ll be one hell of a ride.
You can check out the trailer clip and Murder of the Universe art below, and listen to audio from a 2015 Daytrotter Session with the band via the Paste Cloud further down.
