King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard – “Rattlesnake” Video

Restless Australian psych-rock crew King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have always released music at a rapid pace — their most recent album, Nonagon Infinity, came out back in April — but they’ve just announced an ambitious plan to release five studio albums in 2017, starting with one called Flying Microtonal Banana on 2/24. Each one of the albums is based around a different sonic experiment, and this first one is their first foray into microtonal tuning.

“Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu,” drummer Eric Moore explained in a press release. “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 first single from the album is a 8-minute nervous puncher named “Rattlesnake,” and it comes with a video directed by Jason Galea. Watch and listen and check out all the album details below.
