Prolific Australian rock band King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard has released three live albums to help support three different organizations providing animal-related relief services in the face of that country's unprecedented ongoing bushfires.


Nearly 6,000 firefighters, army reservists and specialists have been deployed to combat nearly 140 separate bushfires around the country. These ongoing fires have been responsible for at least 30 deaths, burned 18.6 million hectares of land and caused the destruction of an estimated 2,683 homes. Additionally, experts are now estimating more than a billion animals on the island continent have died as a result of the fires.
