We’re fast approaching the eye of Hurricane Gizzard in 2017, and the first upon the staggering stack of five albums they'll release this year is a welcome corker.
In true King Giz fashion, Flying Microtonal Banana represents another stylistic territory to conquer – gentler, but never reserved. Indeed, tracks like Open Water and Rattlesnake exude the same frantic...

As Laneway draws ever closer, another powerful addition has been added to its lineup. 


Psych rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will be getting down at Laneway fresh from tearing up the country with their namesake festival, Gizzfest.


They'll be taking to the stage armed with brand new material, recently...

To prove exactly how lit Gizzfest is going to be, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard found there was only one way to prove it - to send Beat Mag up in flames in a glorious fireshow. 


It's been a huge couple of months for King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. After first expanding their Melbourne Gizzfest lineup to include...

Melbourne-via-Torquay septet King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have always had a thing for out-of-the-ordinary album titles.


Past examples include I’m In Your Mind Fuzz, Paper Mâché Dream Balloon and even their most recent LP, April's endlessly looping Nonagon Infinity. With the announcement of their ninth album, however, it seemed as though the Gizz had truly outdone...

Walking into a King Gizzard gig is like preparing for battle. The looming sense of danger translates into a giddy thrill for most punters, and when the house lights go off it’s every person for themselves. All you can do is get swept up in the music and hope you don’t sustain a serious mosh pit injury in the resulting frenzy.

Stu Mackenzie, guitarist, vocalist and psychedelic auteur with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, is casting his mind back to a couple of years ago when the band’s new album, Nonagon Infinity, was originally conceived. King Gizzard had just recorded 2014’s I’m In Your Mind Fuzz, and they were flirting with extending that record’s mixture of thematic consistency and distinct song structure....

Back in the day labels would push bands to churn out a couple of albums each year, the erratic quality of the product counter-balanced by maintaining popular interest and a baseline of commercial activity. King Gizzard have released seven albums in four years (plus an EP), and each is different in its own mesmerising, psychedelic way.
Before the headliners we catch...

It was starting to become a little repetitive. Every six months King Gizzard would drop with a brand new album exploring a different area of psychedelic rock/pop. The album would coincide with a bumper run of shows in various Melbourne venues, often debuting an entirely new set of songs. In theory that’s what we had here: album seven, Paper Mache Dream Balloon, a dalliance with all-...

Working their way across the country on tour with Goat, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have announced a last minute headline show.


Hot off the heels of their latest album, Paper Mache Dream Balloon, the psychedelic rockers will be joined by Hierophants, Lalić and Sewer Side.

In an interview regarding his legendary 1965 acid tests, Ken Kesey recalled a suited businessman appearing at the event. A straight interloper in a crowd of bent youth, the man professed curiosity about the kaleidoscopic festivities scheduled for the evening. A few hours later, Kesey observed the same businessman adopting a regal demeanour, seemingly immersed in his own...
