King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have released a 13-minute video that trails their second of five scheduled albums of 2017, "Murder of the Universe", due out on June 23rd on Heavenly Recordings. The video represents the third 'chapter' of the 21-song album, "Han-Tyumi and the Murder of the Universe".
They describe their forthcoming offering with the following words: '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.' Having released nine full-length albums since 2012, the Gizz seem to be in a state of perpetual motion. Make sure you have fastened your seatbelt before you click on the video.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
