King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Premiere “Le Risque”


Aussie psych rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have released a video for their new single, “Le Risque“. Guy Tyzack directed that clip, with the song itself being the first single from the group’s 26th studio album, “FLIGHT b741“. An August 09th release date has been scheduled for that outing through p(doom) records.

The band’s vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist, etc. Stu Mackenzie had the following to say of what to expect from that outing:

“We had broad themes for every song, and for the bigger picture of the album as a whole, but once the mic was passed it was all up to the person who was singing. These songs weren’t written in isolation – someone would write their verse, sing it for the demo, and that would inspire the next person’s part. So we were riffing off each other. Lyrically, it’s all pretty introspective – we’re having a lot of fun, but we’re often singing about some pretty heavy shit, and probably hitting on some deeper, more universal themes than usual. It’s not a sci-fi record, it’s about life and stuff.”

Notably drummer Michael Cavanagh lent his voice to this track. The group have a busy touring schedule booked that will already lead them into the summer of 2025. See below for their itinerary.
