King Gizzard are releasing five albums next year – here’s one new track of god knows how many

How to make even Ty Segall look like a lazy bastard

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard definitely have more hours in the day than the rest of us.

The Aussie collective only spent a few moments off the road in 2016, supporting the excellent ‘Nonagon Infinity’.

But, they’ve just announced they’ll put out five (yes, not a typo) albums out in 2017.

The first one, ‘Flying Microtonal Banana’ (what else?) comes out on 24 February on Heavenly.

So, ‘Rattlesnake’ is great. That’s the first track. But you’re probably going to hear approximately 40 new pieces of music from Gizzard next year.
