At the time of writing, the psych-rock outfit haven’t shared any singles from 'The Silver Cord'.
Prolific Aussie rockers King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard are releasing their second album of 2023, which also marks their 25th album.
Posting to Instagram last night (27 September), the band shared the album title – The Silver Cord, its seven-song tracklist, its release date – Friday, 27 October – and its pre-order date (Thursday, 12 October).
Plus, they’ve posted the funky album art, which hints that perhaps King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard are dropping the metal influence of their June 2023 album, PetroDragonic Apocalypse; or, Dawn of Eternal Night: An Annihilation of Planet Earth and the Beginning of Merciless Damnation.

“It’s definitely synth-y,” King Gizzard’s lead guitarist Joey Walker told Spin in a recent interview. He added, “I probably wouldn’t use the term ‘companion piece’ myself because I’m thinking of it like they are two records with completely different DNA and completely different personalities.
“You could draw comparisons in many ways, but just in the nature of us being in the same room and playing and writing together, it’s vastly different than [June 2021 album] Butterfly .”
In January, the Melbourne group returned with another live album, Live At Red Rocks '22. The release features performances from the band's October and November 2022 gigs at the iconic Colorado venue, where they played three-hour sets on 10 and 11 October, as well as 2 November.
