On his recent trip to Australia, Wright was actually able to crack cold ones with the Gizzard themselves. This could also confirm that a video directed by Wright is on the horizon.

Also, to keep up with the Gizzard release train, King Gizzard has already released 2 albums this year, Flying Microtonal Banana and the prog-thrash epic Murder of the Universe. Gizzard made a promise for 5 albums this year and it seems that album 3 is already done. Reportedly titled Sketches Of Brunswick East, the album is a collaboration with Mild High Club frontman Alexander Brettin and is more jazzy and free form. Front man Stu Stu Mackenzie told triple j, ““[Mild High Club] came over and played Gizzfest with us in December and [Alex] just stayed at my house for a few weeks. We were sending each other these really rough, vague ideas before that… usually just a chord progression or a melody – these interesting, chilled, jazzy, loose improvised pieces. Then we spent up until a month ago going back and forward, changing them, cutting things out… finished the record that way.” Also, keep your eyes open because the group says that the album can drop at any time with little fan fair.
