King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard may have already released three albums in 2017, but plans for the final two are well underway.
In a post to band’s own sub-Reddit, one fan summarized a brief meeting he had with keyboardist Ambrose Smith, who explained what the supposed remaining two albums of 2017 would entail.
User par_couer said: “Had a quick chat to Ambrose last night at the Murlocs gig in Freo and got some info about the final two king gizz albums for 2017.
He said the next one will be a “jazzy pop thing” sorta like Sketches [of Brunswick East, this month’s new album] but less wonky. He also confirmed that the final album will be Polygondwanaland and that it features Crumbling Castles (as seen on the leaked demos). When I mentioned the leaked demos, he said they weren’t supposed to be heard and that they’ve had to re-record some of it (he didn’t mention why)”
This means that the band, fronted by musical maniac Stu Mackenzie, are set to fulfill their promise of five studio albums in 2017. Further details are expected soon.
