Prolific Melbourne psych-rock adventurers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are releasing a new album, Fishing for Fishies, this Friday (April 27) via ATO/Flightless. Now they have shared another song from it, "The Bird Song." Listen below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Fishing for Fishies includes "Cyboogie," which was shared back in January via a retro-looking video and was one of our Songs of the Week. Then they shared a Jason Galea-directed video for its title track, "Fishing for Fishies" (which was our #1 Song of the Week). Then they shared another song from it, "Boogieman Sam," which has a bit of a blues-rock vibe. The band also shared a violent video for the non-album track "Planet B."

The band released five albums in 2017, so who can blame them for taking 2018 off in terms of putting out new albums (although they did reissue some earlier records). Fishing for Fishies is the band's fifteenth album (and keep in mind that's over the course of only seven years).

Frontman Stu Mackenzie had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "We tried to make a blues record. A blues-boogie-shuffle-kinda-thing, but the songs kept fighting it - or maybe it was us fighting them. Ultimately though we let the songs guide us this time; we let them have their own personalities and forge their own path. Paths of light, paths of darkness. This is a collection of songs that went on wild journeys of transformation."

Mackenzie also commented on what it was like to release five albums in 2017, the last one being released on New Years Eve 2017: "I didn't really know who I was by the end of 2017. It was a good kind of spent feeling though, as I like being busy. For most of the holiday period I was in the studio doing the last of the recording and mixing on Gumboot Soup. And as soon as it clicked over to 2018 I stopped worrying about recording for a while and started living instead."
