Eric Moore, the drummer and manager of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, has announced his departure from the band. Moore’s announcement was made in a statement to the Facebook account of the band’s label, Flightless Records.
While Moore did not cite a direct reason for his departure, he said that he would continue working with the band as part of Flightless Records. Reaching out to King Gizz fans, Moore expressed his gratitude for their support.
“To anyone that caught a show and dived into our world over the last 10 years I just want to say thank you for the support. Being able to travel the world and perform in front of you is not something I take for granted,” Moore wrote.
“Whilst I’m deeply saddened by this decision, I don’t have any regrets and have enjoyed every fuckin’ second of being in this band and the journey it has taken us on. I’ll forever be in awe of the musicianship, creativity and work ethic of every single member.”
Moore also thanked his band members, describing himself as a King Gizz “fan boy from day one”.
“I am so grateful for everything I’ve learnt with my best mates by my side. Life goes on however, and I’m excited to keep growing the label and continuing to champion new artists and business endeavours until the lights go out.” His full statement below.
It is with great sadness that I announce my time with King Gizz has come to an end. I will keep working with Gizz…
Earlier this month, King Gizzard shared a brand new song titled Some Of Us, which followed the release of the single Honey from last month. At this point, it’s still unknown if the tracks will be part of something larger, and if so, would Moore’s drumming appear on those future releases.
