King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard announce new secret album, ‘Butterfly 3000’
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will return on June 11 with the group’s 18th studio album, Butterfly 3000. The 10-track LP will be released via the group’s own KGLW label.
Although Australian alt-psych rockers sent out a press release announcing the album on Tuesday, details are scarce. They are the first to admit that he keeps details on Butterfly 3000 close to the vest: King Gizzard will not release any single before the release date of June 11, nor a tracklist, nor even an album cover. The group described the Butterfly 3000 artwork like “a shady autostereogram created by a longtime collaborator Jason galea. “

With no preview of the upcoming album, the only details of its musical content come from the band’s press release.
Their 18th studio album, Butterfly 3000, might be their most fearless leap into the unknown yet; a suite of ten songs that all began their lives as arpeggiated loops composed on modular synthesizers, before being transformed into addictive, upbeat and totally seductive dream-pop by the six tracks. The album sounds both like nothing they’ve ever done before, and thoroughly, unmistakably Gizz, to its neon psych-a-tronic heyday. It is without a doubt the most accessible and jubilant album of their career.
