King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard announce a massive 2022 world tour in support of Butterfly 3000, their 18th studio album out now on their label KGLW. They will make some of their biggest festival appearances ever, including Lollapalooza in Argentina and Brazil, Primavera Sound, and more. Additionally, the band will bring their legendary live shows to the US in the spring. After a run in Europe, they’ll return to the US and eventually cap off their tour to play the largest venues they have yet, including two consecutive sold out nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatreand Forest Hills Stadium in New York. Additionally, their sets at Red Rocks and at the Greek in Berkeley will be the band’s famous 3 Hour Marathon Sets. Tickets for newly announced US dates are on sale this Friday at 12pm EST and a full list of dates can be found below.
Butterfly 3000 might be Gizz’s most fearless leap into the unknown yet; a suite of ten songs that all began life as arpeggiated loops composed on modular synthesisers, before being fashioned into addictive, optimistic and utterly seductive dream-pop by the six-piece. The album sounds simultaneously like nothing they’ve ever done before, and thoroughly, unmistakeably Gizz, down to its climactic neon psych-a-tronic flourish. This is undoubtedly the most accessible and jubilant album of their career.
