King Gizzard Infest The Rats' Nest coverAll hail the mighty Gizz and their 15th album release in seven years!

From their previous Fishing For Fishies set (April, 2019) – probably King Gizzard’s most accessible to date – they about-face on Infest The Rats’ Nest, going all thrash metal on our arses while reminding us that our planet is f-cked.

Three singles – Planet B, Self-Immolate and the brutal “blood minestrone” of Organ Farmer – accompanied by powerful, sequential music videos heralded the release of Infest The Rats’ Nest (written by just three of the band’s seven members: Stu Mackenzie, Joey Walker and Michael Cavanagh). Double-kick-drum rumble, snarling riffs and screamo vocals dominate; the technical virtuosity on display here is staggering.

Are Gizz showing off? Yep. Is that off-putting? Nup. This pack of musical freaks is unstoppable.

Infest The Rats’ Nest by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is out August 16 via Flightless.
