Already having a big year, Melbourne’s resident psychedelic album-churning septet have announced a tour around Australia for August and September.

King Gizzard have just returned from their maiden American tour which saw them perform at Austin Psych Fest, Canadian Music Week, Northside Festival as well as a twelve date club tour across the East Coast and a June Residency at Baby’s Alright in Brooklyn.

Amongst all that the band also managed to squeeze in a recording session at Daptone in Brooklyn and spent a month upstate holed up in a Ski Lodge in the Catskill Mountains finishing off their next record.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard will visit Sydney, Byron Bay, Brisbane Gold Coast, Adelaide, Perth, Hyden and of course Melbourne. Their last jaunt in their hometown was a staggering five sold out shows across five different venues; this time they plan to play four venues that they missed last time. They’ll also be making a quick trip overseas in the middle of the tour to play their first ever show in China at The Modern Sky Festival.

After this sino-Australian tour King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will head back to the US and Europe to support the release of their new album and for touring which will include shows with Mac DeMarco in New York and an appearance at the Iceland Airwaves Festival.
