King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard announce new heavy metal album, Infest the Rats’ Nest

on June 20, 2019, 6:30pm

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are back to their prolific ways. Today, the Australian psych-rock outfit has announced the release of new album called Infest the Rats’ Nest, due out August 16th via Flightless/ATO. It marks the band’s 15th album to date and arrives just four months after their previous LP, Fishing For Fishies.

Infest the Rats’ Nest features the band’s two recent singles, “Self-Immolate” and “Planet B”, which offer an exciting preview of what a press release describes as their “hardest and heaviest album to date.”

“Drawing on the mid/late 1980s golden period of thrash metal – Metallica and Slayer, certainly, but also lesser-cited bands such as Exodus, Kreator and Overkill – Infest The Rats’ Nest sees a wholly unexpected creative detour into new sonic terrain,” the press release adds.

Infest the Rats’ Nest was recorded by a scaled-down three-piece lineup of Stu Mackenzie, Joey Walker, and Michael Cavanagh, ensuring “tight arrangements and maximum velocity.”

Come August, King Gizzard will return to the road for an expansive tour consisting of dates both in America and Europe. See the full schedule below, and get tickets here.
