King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have announced that they will release a new album, ‘Fishing For Fishies’, next month.

“We tried to make a blues record”, says frontman Stu Mackenzie. “A blues-boogie-shuffle-kinda-thing, but the songs kept fighting it – or maybe it was us fighting them. Ultimately though we let the songs guide us this time; we let them have their own personalities and forge their own path. Paths of light, paths of darkness. This is a collection of songs that went on wild journeys of transformation”.

Here’s the video for one of those very songs, title track ‘Fishing For Fishies’:

The album is out on 26 Apr. The band will also be touring the UK later this year. Here are the dates:

30 Sep: Nottingham, Rock City
1 Oct: Glasgow, Barrowlands
2 Oct: Leeds, Academy
3 Oct: Manchester, Victoria Warehouse
5 Oct: London, Alexandra Palace
