King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard look set to return to your headphones in 2019, with the group teasing the release of new music today.

In case you’ve not been paying attention, it’s currently been over twelve months since we last received music from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

Now, for most bands, that’s just business as usual. However, when you consider that King Gizzard’s average turnaround for a new EP or record is five-and-a-half months, then alarm bells start to ring.

Of course, the Gizz haven’t been sitting on their hands all this time, taking a break from their stellar effort of releasing five albums in one year back in 2017 to tour the world. Since then, the group have found themselves playing shows in the US, Europe, Russia, Mexico, and so many other places.

Now, it looks as though this musical drought is about to be over, with the band teasing new music on Facebook this evening.

Captioned with the phrase “New music coming soon”, the image shows King Gizzard in the studio, while Gareth Liddiard of The Drones and Tropical Fuck Storm flips off the camera to the side.

With Tropical Fuck Storm having supported King Gizz during their recent Aussie tour, and also playing at the 2018 edition of Gizzfest, it’s clear that the two bands are good friends.

Whether this means that Liddiard has a guest spot on the new album (or maybe even pulling producer duties) is unclear, but we’re certain that new music from the band will undoubtedly be worth the wait.
