Members of Australian psych-rock powerhouse King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are spending today celebrating the release of their 14th studio album, Fishing for Fishies. The nine-track project released via Flightless Records acts as the popular rock band’s first since they released a mind-blowing five full-length albums in 2017.
The band’s singer Stu Mackenzie recently spoke about the band’s efforts in the studio on what kind of direction they wanted their latest project to go in.
“We tried to make a blues record,” Mackenzie told Rolling Stone. “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.”
The arrival of Fishing for Fishies on Friday will give the hard-hitting rock band a fresh batch of new material to take on the road, when they head on out their North American headlining tour this summer beginning on August 13th in Los Angeles.
