Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard are gearing up to release a new record, Fishing For Fishies, at the end of the month. Today, they’ve shared a new song that is notably not on the tracklist and is far more aggressive in sound than any of the recent singles shared. Perhaps there’s another album by the profoundly prolific band on the horizon?
The song’s called “Planet B” and is a thundering climate change-themed rocker. It comes to the world via a rather violent video that sees the band clad all in orange and barking like dogs before getting shot one-by-one by a gruff-looking bald woman.
Fishing For Fishies is out April 26 and 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. So far, they’ve shared the singles “Cyboogie,” “Boogieman Sam,” and the record’s title track.
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard will play the Paramount Theatre on Sunday, August 18.
Watch the video for “Planet B” as well as King Giz’s 2018 KEXP in-studio performance below.
The song is the third single to be shared from the Australian band's forthcoming record Fishing For Fishies
