Last fall, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard shared three new albums: Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava; Laminated Denim; and Changes. Now they’ve announced that they’ll be releasing a double LP album with a predictably wild title: PetroDragonic Apocalypse; or, Dawn of Eternal Night: An Annihilation of Planet Earth and the Beginning of Merciless Damnation.
The album is their 24th record so far. The lead single is “Gila Monster” and it comes with a video done by SPOD. “I wanted to shoot Lord of the Rings 4 but also make a video game, so I mixed both mediums and came up with this majestic journey for truth and power in a cursed world,” SPOD said in a statement. “I mixed 3D animation, modeling & live footage in a 3D video game program to create this marvelous voyage of man & beast. Friend or foe?”
They have residencies coming up this summer.
Watch the video for “Gila Monster” above.
