King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are unparalleled in so many ways, but this one takes the cake. Not only is their fourth of 5 albums out this year almost out already, but the band is planning on releasing the album out for free. Not only that, but on Friday, the material will be available in almost every format, including different masters for CD, Digital, and vinyl. The band goes even further goes on to explain how to release the material and produce it in specific details, including pressing it yourself, packing it, etc. You can read the full announcement here.
You’ll be able to listen to the album in full and to download at 9am Friday 17 Nov, Melbourne, Australia time at kinggizzardandthelizardwizard.com
Considered us excited. The implications of this are amazing, mainly that the band has given so much power and control to the fans, stating that the ownership is with the fans, not the band. Many Gizzheads have already taken up pressings through Facebook groups or crowdfunding sites, so if you want in on limited vinyl, you’ll need to do some digging in cyberspace.
