King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard announce new digital screening of ‘Chunky Shrapnel’ film

Australia’s favourite psyche band, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, are preparing a second digital screening of their film Chunky Shrapnel.

The film, which was directed by John Angus Stewart, captures King Gizzard’s tour in the UK and Europe in support of their hugely popular album Infest The Rats’ Nest.

Given the strick social distancing measures leaving millions in lockdown around the world, King Gizzard first offered an online premiere of the film on April 17 which lasted for a 24 hour period. Now though, with an extending period of isolation and the demand for a second viewing, the band will air the film for a second time return this Friday, April 24.

The film, which was originally set to premiere at Melbourne’s Astor Theatre before lockdown, will be featured with additional bonus footage being made available. The project will again be screened on Vimeo for a 24 hour period with a charge of $10.

“In order for Chunky to eventually show in cinemas, these are limited time only screenings and they’ve gotta disappear off the internet when they’re done. This is the last one I reckon,” the band said in a statement.
