Psychedelic rock band King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard will make their feature-length concert film, Chunky Shrapnel, up for stream today (17 April) – starting at 11pm GMT. The film will go offline again after 24 hours.

The film was meant to be screened in Melbourne’s restored single-screen Astor Theatre, however the current coronavirus pandemic cancelled these screenings.

Chunky Shrapnel is directed by John Angus Stewart, also responsible for the videos for Planet B, Organ Farmer and Self Immolate, from the band’s latest thrash-inspired LP Infest the Rats’ Nest. Take a look at some of his handiwork below.

The title comes from a lyric taken from the album Murder Of The Universe, the second half of which features some, well, biological themes. The record itself was one of five full-length records the band released in 2017.
