King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have so far issued three out of the five albums they plan to release in 2017. The band has shared a new single entitled “Crumbing Castle,” presumably from their upcoming fourth album of the year.

February saw the release of Flying Microtonal Banana which was followed by Murder Of The Universe in June and Sketches Of Brunswick East in August. The fourth record is reportedly titled Polygondwanaland and will contain the 10-minute “Crumbling Castles,” which was shared with a video created by Jason Galea.

The band posted the below message to accompany the video:

In the presence of a mirror, my sensory foax-organs detect discontent on my facial image. I cry a digital tear. Motor fluid. Escaping to the floor, it reflects my silhouette. Frigid, slouched, callous. My smell escapes me. A rancid odour. I am everywhere. I am light. I am a reflection. I am that which I am. And I am violent. And I want it to end. Stillness from the grinding gears. I am a raging droid, with a full tank of propellant. Flick the switch. Turn them off. Standby. Cut the cord. Death is a lamb in a wolf’s clothes. A blessing from the lord satan. I am on the altar. I want it. The saccharine of eternal rest. I wish to consume it’s sickly syrup, and lick it from my many fingers. Take me into the moonless night. I need it. Any way I pass will do.
