King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are staying busy amidst their tour being postponed to October: the band has announced a live concert film, Chunky Shrapnel, streaming online starting April 17. A double live album with the same name will follow digitally on April 24, with physical copies available on May 29.
The footage was shot from the band’s perspective during the band’s 2019 European tour and is directed by John Angus Stewart. Frontman Stu Mackenzie described the experience in a press release:
John Stewart followed us around for a few weeks through Europe. 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.
