King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are an Australian psychedelic rock band, who formed in Melbourne, Australia, in 2010.
The band are noted for their energetic live performances and their prolific recording output. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard’s early work saw them primarily perform in a style that blended 1960s surf music, garage rock and psychedelic rock, they have more recently begun to experiment with a broader range of influences, including elements of film music, folk, jazz, soul, Krautrock and heavy metal.
Their eighth full-length album, Nonagon Infinity, was released worldwide on 29 April 2016. Described by frontman Stu Mackenzie as a ‘never-ending album’, it features nine songs connected by musical motifs which flow ‘seamlessly’ into each other with the last track ‘linking straight back into the top of the opener like a sonic mobius strip’. On 8 March the band released a video for the first single, “Gamma Knife”. It contained a riff from the song “People Vultures” which was premiered on April 4.
