Some press for Burning
“ it delivers. Just listen to the intro bass line and immerse yourself in the song’s hypnotic rhythm.” Ja Ja Ja
“There’s no real rush in the song, choosing to let the musicianship be the showcase here” Austin Town Hall
“Black Lizard are one of the stand out bands of the European psychedelic scene… they pool together their influences and own creative flair to produce stunning works of cerebral fuckery: 4/5″ thnksfrthrvw
“Burning after a hot summer, retains all the elements you come to love about Black Lizard, the hypnotic rhythm, the psyched guitars and the eerie vocals are still there.” Glue.fi/Rosvot

Black Lizard still thrill with their psych rock approach, but the Burning EP brings in more prominent electronic elements and disguised voices. Once again Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3) has mastered this new Black Lizard release, with production duties handled by the band themselves. The Burning EP provides a handy stop-gap between albums with Black Lizard’s second full length album due early 2014.
Title track Burning precedes the EP on the 4th August, featuring a yellow coloured themed video from Finnish photographer Katariina Salmi. What was that about yellow being the color of madness?
