King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard just dropped new track more or less out of the blue – an 11-minute apocalyptic jam, Crumbling Castle.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard just dropped a 11-minute apocalyptic jam, Crumbling Castle, alongside a cooked video from Jason Galea.
The band posted the track alongside a video from long-time visual collaborator, Jason Galea, and this message:
“In the presence of a mirror, my sensory foax-organs detect discontent on my facial image. I cry a digital tear. Motor fluid. Escaping to the floor, it reflects my silhouette. Frigid, slouched, callous. My smell escapes me. A rancid odour. I am everywhere. I am light. I am a reflection. I am that which I am. And I am violent. And I want it to end. Stillness from the grinding gears. I am a raging droid, with a full tank of propellant. Flick the switch. Turn them off. Standby. Cut the cord. Death is a lamb in a wolf’s clothes. A blessing from the lord satan. I am on the altar. I want it. The saccharine of eternal rest. I wish to consume it’s sickly syrup, and lick it from my many fingers. Take me into the moonless night. I need it. Any way I pass will do.”
The band also updated their Facebook profile image and cover photo, indicating there might be a new album on the horizon. Their their collaborative LP with Mild High Club, Sketches of Brunswick East, came out back in August.
GIZZFEST is happening again this year too. Find out more details here.
