Paper Mâché Dream Balloon

As mentioned, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard signed with ATO and they've just announced their new album, titled Paper Mâché Dream Balloon, will be out via the label on November 13. That's the cover art above. Heretofore known as garage rockers of the Oh Sees variety, the new album goes for a gentler approach, says frontman Stu Mackenzie:

No electric instruments, just acoustic guitars, flute, double bass, fiddle, harmonica, drum kit, clarinet. Whatever we could find really. We recorded it mostly in an empty shipping container on my parent's farm in country Victoria. It was all horses, emus, and tim tams.

Listen for the tim tam on Paper Mâché Dream Balloon's title track which you can stream, via Stereogum, below.

King Gizzard will be on tour soon, wrapping up their trip in Brooklyn on September 16 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Michael Rault opening. Tickets are still available.
