Melbourne psych-lord luminaries King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have detailed a new feature length documentary film set for release this month, as well as an announcing a live double album to accompany the release.
Chunky Shrapnel was actually set to be premiered at Melbourne's Astor Theatre this month, until everything went to shit and forced us to coop up indoors indefinitely. To give the fans what they want, the band are set to release the film online on Friday April 17 for a limited 24 hour window. You can also preorder the accompanying live Chunky Shrapnel double album on that day - it'll be released in its entirety on Friday April 24.
“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 frontman Stu Mackenzie said in a statement today. “Get the loudest speakers you’ve got, turn ‘em up and watch Chunky on the biggest telly you can find. Get heaps of snacks and convert your lounge room into a cinema.”
