Australia’s favourite psyche monsters King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have released their teaser video titled ‘Murder of the Universe’.
Preparing to release an astonishing five albums this year, King Gizzard are unearthing the first edition today which is titled Flying Microtonal Banana.
Released via our good friends Heavenly Recordings, the album was recorded at the band’s own studio in Brunswick East, Melbourne, in the summer of 2016.
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.”
The band bring their ever-expanding, unrestrained and free-wheeling live show back to the UK in 2017. The dates are as follows:
14th Manchester, Albert Hall
15th London, Forum
