Just three? C'mon, work a little harder, guys...

Exceeding even the most hyperbolic of projections, psych-rock chameleons have just announced the upcoming release of three new albums, all set to be released during the month of October.

We all thought it was nuts when these guys dropped four albums in 2017, but by the end of next month, 2022 is set to see five new records from King Gizz.

What you need to know

  • King Gizzard are going nuts – they’re releasing three albums next month
  • Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava is out October 7, Laminated Denim is out October 12 and Changes is out October 28
  • They will have released five albums in 2022 by the end of October

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

The first to drop will be the Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava, out October 7th. Following that will be Laminated Denim, dropping somewhat unconventionally on October 12th, a Wednesday. Finally, on October 28th the band will release Changestheir fifth album of the year.

Additionally, they have shared a video for one of the songs off the first of this album triumvirat, ‘Ice V.’ This will all be happening during the height of Gizz’s North American Takeover, as the band traverses across the continent playing their largest venues yet, including three shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater (2 of which are sold out) and New York’s Forest Hills Stadium(where Dylan went electric, no less).

As a special treat to those who come and see the band live at some of their biggest shows, limited stock of Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava will be available at their Greek Theatre show in Berkeley, copies of Laminated Denim will be available at Red Rocks, and Changes can be obtained at the Orpheum in New Orleans. Additionally, bundles of all three albums can be pre-ordered here.
