King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard comes through with a new album titled “Fishing For Fishies.” The band released “Cyboogie” as the album’s first single off the music project before the title track. Fishing For Fishies is King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard’s 14th album.
“We tried to make a blues record,” frontman Stu Mackenzie says of the album in a statement. “A blues-boogie-shuffle-kinda-thing, but the songs kept fighting it – or maybe it was us fighting them. Ultimately though we let the songs guide us this time; we let them have their own personalities and forge their own path. Paths of light, paths of darkness. This is a collection of songs that went on wild journeys of transformation.”
‘Fishing For Fishies’ is a kind of country-tinged skiffle jam that harkens back to the melodic, organic sounds of their semi-acoustic album Paper Mâché Dream Balloon. Fishing For Fishies is King Gizz’s first full-length album since their incredible 2017 run that saw them release five albums in 12 months: Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder of the Universe, Sketches of Burnswick East, Polygondwanaland, and Gumboot Soup.
