After receiving international praise for their performances at New York’s CMJ Music Conference just last week, Melbourne’s King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard today release their 5th LP in the space of two and a half years. I’m In Your Mind Fuzz is available digitally & on CD in Australia today and has been named triple j’sFeature Album from Monday 3rd of November.
“Along with Girlpool, these Australians probably played the most shows during CMJ. It felt like everywhere I went, there was the ‘Giz knocking people’s socks off, sometimes through sheer momentum and frenetic energy. Was there more than one song or just one really long insane one? I can’t remember but it’s an awesome blur.” - Brooklyn Vegan
To celebrate King Gizz are stoked to announce the I’m In Your Mind Fuzz Australian Tour!
Saskwatch have dropped a spectacular new video for their track ‘Call Your Name’ over at Bullett Magazine. The animated wonderland is courtesy of Jason Galea and is an otherworldly accompaniment to the #emotions of ‘Call Your Name’.
The nine-piece Melbourne based band will make their first ever trip over to the USA in October to play a string of very special shows as a part of the CMJ Music Week in New York, they will also play two special shows in LA and San Francisco. Full US tour information & dates can be found below. Upon returning to Australia in early November Saskwatch will also play a short run of homecoming shows. The first will be at the NGV in Melbourne on Friday 7th November celebrating The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gautlier.
