BLACK LIZARD – “WINDOW IN TIME
Helsinki garage-rock outfit Black Lizard announce third LP, Celebration Of A New Dawn, on Fuzz Club.

Since forming back in 2008, Finnish garage-rockers Black Lizard have been busy leading the charge in the ever-fruitful Scandinavian underground with their relentless gig schedule and a constant stream of releases. They’ve collaborated with the likes of Anton Newcombe and Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3/Spectrum) and toured Europe several times, appearing at a number of festivals including Great Escape as well as sharing the stage with everyone from Brian Jonestown Massacre, DIIV, The Men, The Horrors, Allah-Las and Veronica Falls.

On February 23rd Black Lizard will be releasing their third album, Celebration Of A New Dawn, on London imprint Fuzz Club Records. Recorded in the basement of a rundown 50s movie theatre turned recording studio, the new album is a sublime excursion into Sixties-indebted, washed-out garage-pop. ‘Celebration Of…’ is Black Lizards best album yet; bright, vivid and lysergic, the record manages to be unapologetically nostalgic yet carve out its own glorious, introspective pastiche – repackaging the Nuggets-esque garage/psych-pop and early-90s shoegaze swoons for 21st-century wastoids.

To announce the release, Black Lizard are sharing the video for ‘Window In Time’, the first single to be taken from the new LP. Talking of the singe, the band explain:“’Window In Time’ is psychedelic pop song about enjoying your life the way it is. Most of their lives people seem to look for things they don’t have and spend their time trying to be like someone else, then there might be a point where you realize that you have everything you need right here and right now.”

Celebration Of A New Dawn follows Black Lizards s/t debut album released in 2013 – Newcombe helping out with recording duties and Sonic Boom helming the mix – and 2015s highly-praised sophomore effort ‘Solarize’. The band is comprised by Paltsa-Kai Salama (vocals, guitar), Joni Seppanen (guitar), Lauri Lyttinen (bass) and Onni Nieminen (drums, percussion).
