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.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
