Melbourne’s King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are excited to announce a second run of US tour dates in 2017, confirming fall headlining shows set to extend throughout September and October in Nashville, Denver, Portland and more. The band will also be releasing their new studio album Murder of the Universe next month on June 23rd.

King Gizzard is a band whose body of work where themes, melodies, motifs, riffs and ideas resurface and recur, each album peeling back a layer of the onion to glimpse at past and future alike. Their albums should be treated as portals through which you can move from one to the other. Songs sync together, records can be played in loops and past ideas recur or are reprised, and then woven into new textures. “These ideas aren’t necessarily contrived,” said Mackenzie. “Sometimes they just happen.”

Lit by thunderclaps and lightning, Murder of the Universe inhabits a sonic landscape of death, decay, ossification, fossilization, rebirth. Pre-order it on vomit splatter vinyl HERE and head below for the full list of upcoming tour dates.
