New Video Alert: King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have a video for ‘Trapdoor.’

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have a bonkers new video for their single ‘Trapdoor.’ The Line of Best Fit are premiering the video directed by artist Jason Galea:

“There’s lots of nodding ghosts (or nuns?) in “Trapdoor” dancing around candelabras and under banquet tables… it’s just something you’ve gotta witness yourself, really, but the schlocky ridiculousness of their visuals marries perfectly with the dusty psych the outfit have churned out.”


Trapdoor’ is the first single to be lifted from King Gizzard’s new album ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon’ which is due out on Friday.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

“A Joy from start to finish” ★★★★ Mojo

“It’s bright, upbeat and ever so slightly insane.” ★★★★ Shindig

“The Melbourne setup’s new record is peppered with blissed-out flutes & clarinets.”GQ

“It’s certainly headier than any dream balloon you’d get from a dodgy bloke with a canister at Glastonbury.”Classic Rock 8/10

“Cold Cadever and NGRI contain among them two of 2015’s most insistently endearing melodies…

…It all makes for a loveably quaint and intriguingly skewiff album, at odds with it’s first impressions: a record to be heard rather than seen.”Loud & Quiet 8/10

“Taking a step back from the hundred-mile-hour psych-thrash and shaking their own foundations, it’s a record that should finally prove King Gizzard to be every bit as brilliant as their daft name.” ★★★★ DIY Magazine

“I like they’re a true ‘band’ that can rock ’n’ roll unrehearsed, like a cell — as natural, fun and vigorous as any rehearsed group. It’s like watching an octopus in water on fast forward.” Tim Presley
