King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have returned exactly a month after the release of their newest album Fishing for Fishies with a video for new single ‘Self-Immolate’.
A metallic thrasher of a song, it’s a stark contrast to the blues-influenced boogie rock of Fishies, guaranteed to get more than a few heads banging and horns raised when they kick off their huge national tour next month.
This is the first taste of their forthcoming 15th studio album, and while details about the album are scant at this point, the band’s Stu Mackenzie explained on triple j’s Drive program that it’ll be an altogether heavy affair.
“For us, we were trying to do the heaviest [music possible]. Take it to the next level of scariness and fastness than we’ve ever done before. We didn’t grow up making heavy metal so it comes from this different place than usual.”
The wild video for ‘Self-Immolate’ features the band, unsurprisingly, setting themselves alight. Watch it below.
