Hailing from Australia, indie alternative band King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard slides into the Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island on Sunday, September 1st, next year!
For more than a decade, their live presence has always been a huge part of their appeal. The album “I’m In Your Mind Fuzz” was critically acclaimed, being nominated for several honors, and was followed by records “Quarters!” and “Paper Mache Dream Balloon.” The band currently holds two National Live Music Awards and eight Music Victoria Awards for varying categories.
“It cannot be overstated how badass it was to see Gizz come out dressed in drag to stand in solidarity with their fans against the bills, which, among other things, criminalized drag performances and banned age-appropriate, best practice gender-affirming care for trans youth. It was almost comical seeing them shred “Self-Immolate” and other heavy metal tunes under the Strawberry Moon clad in dresses.”
Listeners can anticipate to hear songs from their most recent album, "PetroDragonic Apocalypse, or Dawn of Eternal Night: An Annihilation of Planet Earth and the Beginning of Merciless Damnation." Among the official members who contributed to this new album are Stu Mackenzie on lead guitar, Ambrose Kenny on vocals, Joey Walker on guitar, Michael Cavanagh on drums, Cook Craig on bass, and Lucas Harwood on lyrics.
