King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard is a seven-piece psychedelic rock band from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The group first formed by making jams together until they were asked to play at a show. After agreeing on a quick name, the band officially started playing as King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard in 2010. The seven talented members are: Stu Mackenzie on vocals, guitar and flute, Ambrose Kenny-Smith on synths, harmonica and vocals, Cook Craig on guitar, Joe Walker on guitar, Lucas Skinner on bass and Eric Moore and Michael Cavanagh both on drums.
In 2015, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard started their own music festival called Gizzfest. The fest went to five cities across Australia. The band is currently signed to Flightless Records. King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard has released nine studio albums and two EPs. In 2017 alone, the group plans on releasing four or five albums; they have already released Flying Microtonal Banana in February and Murder of the Universe will be out on June 23.
