Infest the Rats' Nest is the fifteenth studio album by Australian psychedelic rock band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard. It was released on 16 August 2019 by the band's record label, Flightless, and ATO Records. The album sees the band exploring further into heavy metal and thrash metal which they had only briefly touched upon on previous albums.[2][3] The album's themes deal with climate change impacts, destruction of the environment and human resettlement to other planets.[4] It is the band's final studio album to feature band member Eric Moore before his departure a year later.

At the ARIA Music Awards of 2019, the album was nominated for ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock or Heavy Metal Album,[5] losing to Northlane for Alien.

Background

Infest the Rats' Nest's first single, "Planet B", was given a surprise release on 8 April 2019, before the release of the band's fourteenth studio album Fishing for Fishies, along with an accompanying music video. The song not being featured on the track list for Fishing for Fishies as well as its distinct contrast to the sounds on that album led to speculation that the band might release a second album in 2019.[6]

During a Reddit AMA on 30 April, the band confirmed the next album was in the works and would include "Planet B", but they had not decided if it would be released in 2019. The album was initially believed to be named Auto-Cremate due to the band's use of the name as their username in the AMA, but was later confirmed to be titled Infest the Rats' Nest.[7]

On 29 May, the band released the album's second single "Self-Immolate" with another accompanying music video a week after a teaser on social media.[8] On 18 June, the band posted another teaser on social media which confirmed the album's title. The album was officially announced three days later with a release date of 16 August.[9][10] On 25 June, the band released a third single, "Organ Farmer", along with a music video that included fans as extras.[11]

Infest the Rats' Nest was composed and recorded mostly with only three of the band's usual seven-man lineup (Stu MacKenzie, Joey Walker, and Michael Cavanagh) and showcases influences derived from heavy metal, mixing the band's signature garage rock guitar tones and psychedelic rock sounds with thrash metal. The album makes consistent use of double kick drumming influenced by heavy metal pioneers Motörhead. Mackenzie also said that the album's strong thrash metal influence was derived from bands such as Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Overkill, Sodom, Rammstein and Kreator.[12]

On the album's themes, frontman Stu Mackenzie explained that the A-side is about current problems, especially ecological disaster and climate change, and is set in the near future, and the B-side is about the story of a group of rebels attempting to settle on Venus after being forced to leave Earth.[12][13]

Infest the Rats' Nest was well-received by music critics upon its release. On the review aggregator website Metacritic, the album has a score of 77 out of 100 based on 14 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[14] In the review for AllMusic, writer Tim Sendra concluded that "King Gizzard aren't sugarcoating anything, either musically or thematically, and that makes for their most timely and political album yet. It's also one of their most musically compelling and impressive, too, and that's saying a lot."[15]

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard ist eine australische Psychedelic-Rock-Band, die 2010 in Melbourne, Victoria gegründet wurde.[1][2] Die Gruppe veröffentlichte seit 2012 insgesamt 18 Studioalben, davon alleine fünf im Jahr 2017.

Die Musik der Band entwickelte sich in der frühen Zeit von Surf- und Garagenrock über Psychedelic Rock zu einem Gemisch aus vielen verschiedenen Einflüssen, mit Bestandteilen aus Progressive Rock, Folk, Jazz, Soul und Metal. Im Jahre 2016 wurde die Band bei den ARIA Awards in der Kategorie Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album ausgezeichnet.[3]

Geschichte

Der Sänger und Gitarrist Stu Mackenzie traf sich ab 2010 mit Ambrose Kenny Smith, Joey Walker, Cook Craig, Lucas Skinner, Michael Cavanagh und Eric Moore zu diversen Jamsessions. Auf Anraten eines Freundes trat die Band erstmals zu einem Konzert auf und musste sich kurzfristig einen Namen ausdenken. Während Mackenzie die Band Gizzard Gizzard nennen wollte bevorzugte ein namentlich nicht bekanntes Bandmitglied Lizard King, den Spitznamen des Doors-Sängers Jim Morrison. Als Kompromiss wählte man King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard. Es folgte die erste Single Hey There – Ants & Bats sowie 2011 die beiden EPs Anglesea und Willoughby’s Beach.

Die Band wurde vom Plattenlabel Flightless unter Vertrag genommen und veröffentlichten 2012 ihr Debütalbum 12 Bar Bruise. Der Gesang wurde kurioserweise nicht über ein Mikrofon, sondern über ein iPhone aufgenommen. Ein Jahr später veröffentlichten die Musiker mit Eyes Like the Sky und Float Along – Fill Your Lungs gleich zwei Studioalben. 2014 wiederholt sich dies mit den Alben Oddments und I’m in Your Mind Fuzz, wobei mit ersterem zum ersten Mal der Sprung in die australischen Albumcharts gelang. Auch 2015 veröffentlichte die Band mit Quarters! und Paper Mâché Dream Balloon zwei Studioalben. Die Besonderheit am Album Quarters! ist, dass es vier Lieder enthält, die allesamt 10:10 Minuten lang sind. Mit Nonagon Infinity erschien 2016 nur ein Album. Bei diesem Album geht jedes Lied in das nächste über, was auch für das letzte und das erste gilt.

Im Jahr 2017 veröffentlichten King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard gleich fünf Studioalben, nämlich Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder of the Universe, Polygondwanaland, Sketches of Brunswick East (mit Mild High Club) und Gumboot Soup. Flying Microtonal Banana schaffte den Sprung auf Platz zwei der australischen Albumcharts, während in den USA erstmals der Sprung in die dortigen Albumcharts gelang.
