King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard released their new album Paper Mâché Dream Balloon last week and if you haven't heard it yet it's streaming through the service of your choice (we've got Spotify below). The record eschews their crazed psych-garage in favor of acoustic instruments, jazzy arrangements and more than a little flute. You can also check out the horror-themed video for "Trapdoor" below.

The band, who were here in NYC in September, will be touring in the Spring, including a NYC show at Bowery Ballroom on May 14. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (11/20) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (11/18) at noon. All tour dates are listed below.
