King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have not only announced the release of their next album, Flying Microtonal Banana, but also the release of FOUR further albums in 2017.
Flying Microtonal Banana, set to be released on Heavenly Recordings in February 2017, was recorded at the band’s own studio in Brunswick East, Melbourne, in the summer of 2016.
The band have also recently unveiled Rattlesnake, the first track to be taken from the album.
Talking about the making of Flying Microtonal Banana, Eric Moore of the band said:
“Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu.
“The guitar was modified to play in 24-TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal.
“The record features the modified electric guitars, basses, keyboards and harmonica as well as a Turkish horn called a Zurna.”
King Gizzard have also announced two UK shows in June next year.
