King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have released a pair of live albums to benefit relief efforts in response to devastating wildfires in their native Australia.
The Melbourne-bred psych outfit released two live albums on Bandcamp, one of which was recorded in Adelaide, Australia last year. Proceeds from Live In Adelaide ’19 go to Wildlife Victoria, an Australian wildlife emergency response program that operates shelters throughout Victoria. The second live album comes from a 2019 concert in Paris, and the earnings from that release go to benefit Animals Australia, an organization that fights against animal cruelty.
The albums are available for a minimum of $10 Australian (AUD), roughly $6.88 USD, or more, as there is a name your price option which allows users to donate additional funds.

These humanitarian efforts follow a 12-month period of what would be considered extreme productivity for any band other than King Gizzard. The group released two full-length albums, Fishing For Fishies and Infest the Rat’s Nest. The Lizard Wizards show no signs of slowing down in 2020 as they have announced literal “marathon shows” at the Greek Theatre in Berkley, CA and Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison, CO. As if that wasn’t enough, the band also announced a spring tour of the United States and Canada between the “marathon shows.”
Tickets for King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s upcoming concerts are available through their website.
