The genre-bending Australian outfit known as King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard return today with their new album, Infest the Rats’ Nest. Subscribers of Apple Music and Spotify can enjoy it below.
Infest the Rats’ Nest marks the prolific band’s 15th album to date and arrives just four months after their previous LP, Fishing For Fishies.
This go around, a scaled-down three-piece lineup of Stu Mackenzie, Joey Walker, and Michael Cavanagh recorded what’s been billed as King Gizzard’s “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,” a press release notes.
