Following the epic year of King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard’s five releases back in 2017, the band are releasing a brand new record titled ‘Fishing For Fishies’ on their own label Flightless this spring.

If their recent single ‘Cyberboogie‘ is anything to by we’re expecting a lot more boogieing on this release.

As ever Jason Galea has provided the super sleeve artwork which was revealed alongside the track-listing today.
