King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Officially Announce New Album “L.W.”, Premiere “Pleura” Music Video

King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have officially confirmed that their new album “L.W.” will be released on February 26. With this news, the band have also premiered a new video for the effort’s latest single “Pleura”:

The video’s director John Angus Stewart commented:

“I think a true document of live music shouldn’t rely entirely on editing. There is something that happens with the way we perceive images, if something ‘live’ is too produced, your mind sort of loses interest. With this format, we wanted to leave the editing up to the viewer. The decision of who to look at, and at what time determines each individual viewing experience. With each watch your experience will be completely different, which mirrors Gizzard’s experience playing the song live. The process is the same, yet the result is different.”

Vocalist/guitarist Stu Mackenzie also added the following about the album, which follows the release of the band’s 2020 record “K.G.”:

“We wanted to make new music that was somehow more colorful this time around, and which maybe reflected the many new things that we have learned along the way. After recording ‘Flying Microtonal Banana‘ the songs expanded when we played them live, so we felt ready to tackle the microtonal landscape again. Making these two new records was not expected, but because they were recorded in a way that was new to us – not being in the room at the same time – there was a feeling of almost being over-prepared, which is definitely not normal for us. Whatever normal is.”
