Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have announced a new album titled Fishing for Fishies. The album got leaked momentarily over the weekend after Reddit discovered the Canadian version of the music webstore 7digital had the album listed, with 60-second previews of the nine songs encompassing the record. That’s since been taken down and the band themselves have confirmed its release for April 26 via their self-run label Flightless.

Fishing for Fishies follows 2017’s incredible run of five original albums, Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder of the Universe, Sketches of Brunswick East (with Mild High Club), Polygondwanaland, and Gumboot Soup. They recently shared the new single “Cyboogie.” King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard will play the Paramount Theatre on Sunday, August 18.
