King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have the same 24 hours as you. Remember that as you read they have just announced their eighteenth studio album Omnium Gatherum, a double album that is announced with the 18-minute single 'The Dripping Tap'.

'The Dripping Tap' is everything KGLW fans have always wished for: a Grateful Dead-esque jam that morphs from blues to krautrock through prog rock.

The album’s title, the band's Stu Mackenzie says, is “literally Latin for ‘a collection of miscellaneous people or things’”. "I think we’re entering into our ‘jammy period’" he added.

We have no track-list or release date as of yet, but we do know that Omnium Gatherum will have 16 tracks and pre-order will begin on 22 March.
