Featuring performances from the band's October and November 2022 gigs at the iconic venue.
The ever-prolific Aussie psychedelic rock group King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have returned with another live album, Live At Red Rocks '22. The release features performances from the band's October and November 2022 gigs at the iconic Colorado venue, where they played three-hour sets on 10 and 11 October, as well as 2 November.
The mega-collection is available to stream and buy via Bandcamp. As Jambase notes, the live album is part of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's Bootlegger program, which allows fans to sell the audio in physical formats as long as they send some copies to the band to release on Gizzverse.com.
Last year, the Melbourne group released five albums alone, including Omnium Gatherum and Changes, which both debuted at #4 on the ARIA Albums Chart, the #6 album Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava, the #11 record Laminated Dream, and Made In Timeland, which hit #65.
Last June, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard won the inaugural $20,000 publicly-voted Environmental Music Prize.
The cult-adored Aussie band are renowned for their psychedelic rock which links concepts of character with themes of climate change and futurism. Their 2020 single, If Not Now, Then When?, was set in a post-eco-apocalyptic time, questioning the inaction of our leaders and calling for immediate action on climate change.
The band donated the prize money to The Wilderness Society to further conversation and climate action in Australia.

Stu Mackenzie, the band’s singer and principal songwriter, commented, “We’re so humbled to have won the inaugural Environmental Music Prize! It’s fantastic and deeply important for initiatives like this one, to help build community around the fight against the climate crisis.
"This song is part of a larger idea, a thread and a collection of narratives that extend through all of our music. Exploring themes of climate destruction and what that might look like, is an important exploration for us. A window of what reality could be, if we fail to take real action.”
Environmental Music Prize Founder, Edwina Floch said about the winner, “Music has the power to capture our imagination, touch us deeply, and enable us to dream big."
