A very good question posed by ever-prolific musos.
Today, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have released a new track called “If Not Now, Then When?” along with an animated music video by Dr. D Foothead.
“The song made me consider how individual action or inaction affects the world,” Dr. D Foothead says of the video. “What happens when our repressed pain, darkness and confusion manifest and influence our surroundings and relationships? I wanted to explore the journey of a character who has neglected their inner shadow, and how this energy manifests physically and becomes a force of its own.”
Last month, the band released their sixteenth studio album K.G (the second volume in the band’s previous explorations into microtonal tunings), as well as Live In S.F. ’16 (ATO Records), a live album recorded during the band’s 2016 U.S. tour stop at San Francisco venue The Independent. Stream/purchase K.G. HERE, and stream/purchase Live In S.F. ’16 HERE.
Shortly before the album release, the band delighted fans with a full concert film accompanying Live In S.F. ’16. Unlike their previous film release with Chunky Shrapnel, fans are able to own the film with a purchase of a stream. Stream/purchase the Live In S.F. ’16 film HERE, and watch “Evil Death Roll” from the film HERE.
