King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have announced another new album. After the release of PetroDragonic Apocalypse earlier this year, the group announced via Instagram that their latest—the band’s 25th album overall—will be titled The Silver Cord, and it’s out on October 27. Based on the cover art that accompanied the announcement, we can perhaps expect that it’ll feature more synth-based material than on their more heavy metal-inspired recent releases. Will it be more Rick Wakeman or Gary Numan? We don’t know! They haven’t released any songs just yet, but chances are pretty good they’ll be taking a turn into another new direction. Check out the tracklist below, including the “extended edition,” which… looks like the same songs but, uh, extended?
