King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced a new double album, ‘Omnium Gatherum’.
Set to arrive “soon” via their own label KGLW, it comes alongside an 18-minute lead single, ‘The Dripping Tap’.
Following up on 2020’s ‘KG’ and 2021’s ‘LW’ and ‘Butterfly 3000’, the new album marks the first time the band recorded together since the COVID pandemic hit.
While most King Gizzard albums pursue a single theme or style, the new record presented an opportunity to try new ideas without committing to an entire album in that style.
“This recording session felt significant,” explains the band’s Stu Mackenzie. “Significant because it was the first time all six Gizzards had gotten together after an extraordinarily long time in lockdown. Significant because it produced the longest studio recording we’ve ever released. Significant because (I think) it’s going to change the way we write and record music – at least for a while… A turning point. A touchstone. I think we’re entering into our ‘jammy period’. It feels good.”
