Label: Flightless Records

Well, it’s a Tuesday, so you know what that means…King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are dropping another album.  Murder of the Universe is the second LP in a series of FIVE full-lengths that the Gizz is expected to release in 2017.  You know…since they’re demigods and need not food or sleep.

Murder of the Universe deals with the plausible realities that face our planet and our species.  Will humans be violently wiped out by the AI tech we invented to simplify our daily routines?  Will our planet swallow us whole in a wave of natural disasters that we could have prevented had we taken better care of it?  Is the universe finite?  King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are facing those fears for us in this epic new concept album that will undoubtedly shake your brain stems lose and rupture your spleens with explosive psychedelic riffs and melodies.

Flightless Records has THREE variants, each limited to 2000, so you’re gonna have a little time to think about which one you want before they sell out.  And they will sell out, friend.  ATO Records appears to have the rarest of the variants, a smoky wax limited to 1000.  Heavenly Recordings has a glow-in-the-dark version as well, and there will be an indie record store exclusive rolling out.  Check out the teaser video as well as a live cut from one of the new tracks Lord of Lightning.
