King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard Announce New LP 'Fishing For Fishies' And Accompanying Tour Dates

Tuesday, 12 March 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Melbourne's King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have announced their 14th album.

The prolific psychedelic septet will release 'Fishing For Fishies’ on April 26 via their own Flightless Records label. They've also shared the album's catchy, Americana-infused title track and opener, which is paired with a partly animated video directed by Jason Galea and follows Cyboogie in previewing the record.

The band took to Instagram to share the album's cover art, which is viewable below alongside the tracklist and Fishing For Fishies video. Frontman Stu Mackenzie said:

"We tried to make a blues record. A blues-boogie-shuffle-kinda-thing, but the songs kept fighting it - or maybe it was us fighting them. Ultimately though we let the songs guide us this time; we let them have their own personalities and forge their own path. Paths of light, paths of darkness. This is a collection of songs that went on wild journeys of transformation."

Having recently confirmed details of their biggest UK show yet at London's Alexandra Palace in October, the band have lined up additional shows for a UK and European tour. Tickets go on sale at 10am on March 15. They'll also support the album's release with a North American tour beginning in August.

'Fishing For Fishies' tracklist:

1.  Fishing For Fishies
2.  Boogieman Sam
3.  The Bird Song
4.  Plastic Boogie
5.  The Bird Song
6.  Real’s Not real

Exposure to early 2000s emo, nu-metal and pop-punk usually results in one of two reactions: a disgusted sneer, often accompanied by an exasperated sigh, or a knowing smile followed by overly enthusiastic headbanging. Dude York’s members would choose the latter.
