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.”

“L.W.” Track Listing:

01. “If Not Now, Then When?”
02. “O.N.E.”
03. “Pleura”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Premiere “O.N.E.” Video

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have premiered a new video for their new song “O.N.E.” You can check that out below. This news comes after a recent leak seemed to suggest that the band are planning to release a new album titled “L.W.” on February 26.

Director Alex McClaren commented:

“The song itself feels as if it’s constantly moving along so I tried to keep the visuals continually moving forward and sliding into different visual styles and landscapes. I felt the mix of stop motion and collage through the use of found imagery and the band would help compliment the tracks lyrics and themes as I interpreted them, of dreams, nightmares, climate change, dystopias, and utopias, as well as referencing events that took place during the making of the video over 2020. All video of the band was shot by Ambrose during the second lockdown restrictions and I had to give notes on shooting and direct remotely which was strange but so was everything during that period.”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have premiered an animated video for their new single “If Not Now, Then When?.“ The clip was directed by Dr. D Foothead, who had the following to say about it:

“The song made me consider how individual action or inaction affects the world. What happens when our repressed pain, darkness and confusion manifest and influence our surroundings and relationships? I wanted to explore the journey of a character who has neglected their inner shadow, and how this energy manifests physically and becomes a force of its own.”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Release 28-Track Demo Collection

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have released a new demo collection via Bandcamp. The two volume effort features material that was recorded from 2011 to 2020. Stu Mackenzie commented:

“OK, so this one required a fair old loosening of the ego to put out there. But sometimes you’ve just gotta make yourself as small as an ant and let go… These are recordings which were never supposed to see the light of day. But here they are: loose as; sloppy as. Hopefully endearing. In truth, an insane amount of effort and love went into these songs and I feel buoyed by sharing them. I’ve shed my skin, I’m a butterfly, I’m on fire. Stu xoxox”
