King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard laat laatste album remixen

'Butterfly 3001' verschijnt digitaal en als dubbel-lp op 21 januari.

De Australische psychrockband King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard gaf het in augustus verschenen studioalbum 'Butterfly 3000' in handen van onder meer DJ Shadow, Flaming Lips, Peaking Lights, Yu Su, DāM-FunK en Hieroglyphic Being. De eerste twee singles Neu Butterfly 3000 - Peaches remix en Shanghai - The Scientist Dub zijn nu te beluisteren.

Bandlid en gitarist Joey Walker licht toe: "We've put off doing a remix album for a long time. Maybe it was conscious, maybe it wasn't. But it's happening now. That's not to say that Butterfly 3000 makes the most sense to remix. It might seem like the obvious one, but it's not. Yes it's electronic. But so is a fridge. Have you tried to dance to Butterfly? It's hard. It ties your shoelaces together. It's duplicitous in its simplicity. But Butterfly 3001 expands on this. It also deviates and obliterates. We're honoured to have such esteemed people go to work on these songs. We hope you love this album as much as we do. See you in DA CLUB!!!"
