Broken down into 3 distinct 'chapters', this sprawling 21-track opus is concerned with the downfall of man and the death of the planet.

The album was recorded at Flightless HQ in East Brunswick, Melbourne Australia in early 2017 and produced by the band's Stu Mackenzie. Lit by thunderclaps and lightning, 'Murder Of The Universe' inhabits a sonic landscape of death, decay, ossification, fossilisation, rebirth. It is a place occupied by wandering shape-shifting beasts, bleeding skies, pools of blood, great fires and mushroom clouds; a planet rent asunder by conflict.

A disorientating experience, the album hinges on three distinct sections that rise from larval beds, and whose lyrics should be carved in stone, squeezed from moss, discovered in ancient runes. And all the while a passing cast of characters imbue the tale with both human and non-human emotions. Snippets of earlier recordings breakthrough collection 'I'm In Your Mind Fuzz' and 'Nonagon Infinity' resurface throughout like ghostly shadow form to haunt their latest sound.

In years to come King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard will be judged not by their separate albums, but by a body of work where themes, melodies, motifs, riffs and ideas resurface and recur, each album peeling back a layer of the onion to glimpse at past and future alike.

LP - Black Vinyl with 32 page booklet and Download card included.
