King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

Nonagon Infinity Album Tour | Australia 2016
Last week the irrepressible King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard released their fourth spectacular album in 18 months, Nonagon Infinity via Flightless / Remote Control Records.
Nonagon Infinity is a high-octane, face-melting 9-song collection and the world’s first infinitely looping LP where each track seamlessly flows into the next, with the final song linking straight back into the top of the opener.
King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are a band both live and on record that are absolutely at the top of their game and now the record is out worldwide the boys return to Australia to deliver the live goodness throughout Australia in June and July.
Expect the usual crazy shows at all stops including Splendour in the Grass, Dark Mofo, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Ballarat, Geelong and Wollongong.
Without further ado and with total excitement we announce the KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD Nonagon Infinity Australian album tour.

BACKGROUND ON NONAGON INFINITY

After the acid-flecked cosmic jazz of Quarters! and the hazy, pastoral, acoustic bliss of Paper Mache Dream Balloon, Nonagon Infinity sees the Gizzard once again dive head-long into the gonzo freak-beat frenzy that mark both their Heavenly debut I’m In Your Mind Fuzz, and their perpetually in motion, double-drummer propelled live show. Recorded at Daptone Studios in Brooklyn, work on the album began in 2014, around the release of the bands acclaimed LP I’m In Your Mind Fuzz. Ever-prolific, it took King Gizzard two years and two additional albums to fine-tune the concept and music that would become Nonagon Infinity. In that time the group has zigzagged between 1960s beach-pop, stripped down acoustic psych, and densely packed prog, while always keeping the seeds of Nonagon Infinity fertile. This all makes Nonagon Infinity an intricate, astonishing culmination. “We really wanted to focus on things that felt good live,” explains frontman Stu Mackenzie. “We’d grab a little riff here or a little groove there, and we’d jam on them and form songs. I wanted to have an album where all these riffs and grooves just kept coming in and out the whole time, so a song wasn’t just a song, it was part of a loop, part of this whole experience where it feels like it doesn’t end and doesn’t need to end.”
Last year’s Paper Mache Dream Balloon was met with the best reviews of the band’s career. Rolling Stone declared them “one of the most compelling collectives of art-rock experimentalists in recent years.”
