The stupendously prodigious and globally beloved KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD take a break from their manic music schedule to return to Laneway and melt some minds. Since we last hosted them on our stages, the ‘Giz released five stellar albums in a single year and just kept on going. Record number 15, Infest the Rats Nest debuted at #2 on the ARIA charts, and marks their second full-length release for 2019. Not a bad effort for a band who are only in their ninth year of existence. Their genuine devotion to rock and roll has garnered them a bona fide cult from London to Madrid and beyond, particularly noticeable at their own Gizzfest day festival. More than psych, more than prog, more than pretty much bloody anything, this double-drumming Hydra has enough material to play the entire festival tour alone. The Melburnians continue to blow our minds and feed our souls and we’re thrilled to have them back. [Only Australian shows this summer]
