Published Apr 02, 2020King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard are adding to their increasingly large catalogue, this time with a double live album and feature-length film.
The project is called Chunky Shrapnel, and it will arrive on April 17 via a livestream online. The film's accompanying double LP — recorded throughout the band's 2019 European tour — will be available for pre-order on April 10, before its digital release on April 24.
"A musical road movie dipped in turpentine, Chunky Shrapnel is a point of view/onstage experience from the perspective of King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard," a press release states. "Once a song begins, just like the band, you're stuck in the adrenaline-fueled quicksand that there is no escape from. The film's contention is clear from the outset, it's going to be a 'journey' not a 'lecture,' an incurved experience rather than a linear one."
You can purchase tickets to the livestream film premiere now. Watch a trailer down below, where you will also find the tracklisting to the accompanying live album.
"John Stewart [director of Chunky Shrapnel] followed us around for a few weeks through Europe," said the band's Stu Mackenzie in a statement. "It was fun and funny and wild and weird. Sometimes an inconspicuous fly on the wall, sometimes an intrusive camera man one inch from my face. Always exciting though. Chunky Shrapnel was made for the cinema but as both concerts and films are currently outlawed, it feels poetic to release a concert-film digitally right now."
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard had to postponed their North America tour until the fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic. See those rescheduled dates below as well.
