King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s Europe Tour 2024 hit Amsterdam on Thursday. The Aussie rockers unveiled another new song, “Daily Blues,” at AFAS Live.

KGLW has unveiled three brand new songs on their European tour so far, “Sad Pilot”, “Le Risqué” and the aforementioned “Daily Blues.” The band has also offered live premieres of songs from their three most recent studio albums The Silver Cord, PetroDragonic Apocalypse and Changes.

The “Daily Blues” debut emerged from “The Bitter Boogie.” A strutting number, “Daily Blues” boasted a sizzling opening guitar lick as well as blues harmonica from Ambrose Kenny-Smith. Guitarist Stu Mackenzie handled lead vocals while Amby, Joey Walker and Cook Craig joined on a call-and-response chorus. The song also contained an outro section that took a few twists and turns.
