King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard announce Chunky Shrapnel, a feature-length motion picture that follows King Gizzard’s adrenaline-inducing onstage performances from the perspective of the band. The film is accompanied by a double LP featuring the music from the film, which was recorded throughout the band's 2019 European tour. The film will premiere on Friday, April 17 via an online live-stream. The film's accompanying double LP is available to order now, before its digital release on April 24. “John Stewart (director of Chunky Shrapnel) followed us around for a few weeks through Europe," says the band's Stu Mackenzie. "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."
Chunky Shrapnel is the first ever live LP (as well as the first ever double LP) from Australia’s acclaimed genre-defying band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard. It is the soundtrack to the feature-length music documentary film following King Gizzard on their 2019 tour across Europe and the UK, showcasing the adrenaline-inducing on-stage performances from the perspective of the band and offering a deeply immersive and unique experience.
The accompanying feature length film was directed and shot on 35mm by John Angus Stewart, who began working with Gizzard in 2019 making several music videos for their thrash metal album Infest The Rats Nest. Stu Mackenzie (lead singer) created an original accompanying musical score to portions of the film that feels somewhat magical with a touch of an alien melancholy.
At times gently holding your hand and at other times smashing a bottle over your head and dumping your body in a heaving crowd, Chunky Shrapnel brings us into a driving, ever-accelerating spiral that climaxes in a 15 minute medley that spans performances in four countries.
This exciting live record will come housed in a double gatefold sleeve made of heavy 350gsm silver reflective board, rounded inner-sleeves and a gold-foil obi strip.
