King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard Ready New Record, Premiere “Cellophane”

If you read my extensive coverage of Austin Psych Fest this year, then you might remember this band’s name from Day 1 and how they helped cure my preemptive festival hangover. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are a group of Aussies who go fucking off. They’ve got two drummers, more guitarists than I can count on one hand, and a tendency to make head-nodding, guitar-screaming rock n roll.

Currently, the band is getting ready to drop their newest alb, I’m In Your Mind Fuzz on November 11th, via John Dwyer’s label Castle Face. Today, they’ve premiered their newest single, “Cellophane” on their site. Does it capture the energy of their live performance? Not entirely, but that’s a hard act to follow. It’s a fun track and definitely makes me want to hear how these Aussies sound on record. The band is also gearing up for a small US tour before hand. Of course, Nashville gets screwed,  but peep the tour dates below and try to catch them if they’re in your area.
