After releasing the hippy-dippy title track to their upcoming album, Fishing for Fishies, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have shared something completely different, as they are wont to do. As Pitchfork reported, the Melbourne psych-rock troupe has released a video for a seemingly non-album single, “Planet B,” which is a straight up thrash metal song. At first the visual has shades of Monty Python, albeit very bizarre shades even for Python standards, but then takes a dark turn. You can watch the video for King Gizzard’s “Planet B” above.
Fishing for Fishies arrives on April 26 and is King Gizzard’s first LP since their prolific five-album output in 2017 with Gumboot Soup, Polygondwanaland, Sketches of Brunswick East, Murder of the Universe and Flying Microtonal Banana. So far, the Australian 7-piece has shared three singles from Fishing for Fishies: the title track, “Boogieman Sam” and “Cyboogie” with the latter arriving with a visual. Check it out here.
