King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have just dropped a fresh new tune, weeks before the release of their upcoming album, Fishing For Fishies.

For a couple of months now, fans have been eagerly awaiting a new record from Melbourne collective, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

Taking a year off in 2018 after releasing five records in 2017, the group teased the release of new music earlier this year, before releasing new single ‘Cyboogie’ soon after.

Soon, news of the band’s upcoming album was leaked, with one online retailer prematurely revealing that the band’s 14th(!) album, Fishing For Fishies, would be released on April 26th.

However, with a few weeks to go, King Gizz have now dropped a taste of fresh new tunes for your listening pleasure.

Dubbed ‘Planet B’, the new song saw its release this morning, backed with a rather interesting music video that shows the band at what is ostensibly an air field. While it starts out comically enough, the clip soon takes a rather violent turn.

Sonically, the track sees King Gizz dipping into the world of thrash metal, with pounding drums, vocal growls, and the promise of the sweatiest mosh in history when this one makes its live debut.

Most interestingly though, ‘Planet B’ doesn’t show up on the track list for the band’s upcoming album. Could this be a standalone single? Or could this mean we’re about to witness another purple patch for the sprawling musical group?

Whatever the case, 2019 is already a fine year for fans of King Gizz, and their first album hasn’t even dropped yet.
