King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are going to release three new albums.
‘Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava’ is due 7th October, followed by ‘Laminated Denim’ on the 12th, and finally, ‘Changes’ on the 28th.
“All we had prepared as we walked into the studio were these seven song titles,” says Stu Mackenzie of the first of the full-lengths. “I have a list on my phone of hundreds of possible song titles. I’ll never use most of them, but they’re words and phrases I feel could be digested into King Gizzard-world.
“Naturally, each day’s jams had a different flavor, because each day was in a different scale and a different BPM. We’d walk into the studio, set everything up, get a rough tempo going and just jam. No preconceived ideas at all, no concepts, no songs. We’d jam for maybe 45 minutes, and then all swap instruments and start again.”
“We had an editable Google Sheet that we were all working on,” he adds.
