King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is back in the US for a series of concerts this summer and we are marking the event with a new and updated version of CHUNKY SHRAPNEL – now with an additional 30 min short film SLEEPING MONSTER. The short chronicles the recording sessions and behind the scenes footage of the band in the studio making their album “Changes”.
CHUNKY SHRAPNEL is the feature length live music documentary that follows the hugely popular, hyper-prolific Australian band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard on their recent European tour. Literally bringing the audience onto the stage, Chunky Shrapnel offers a uniquely immersive experience never before captured on film… a musical road movie dipped in turpentine.
SLEEPING MONSTER was filmed in Melbourne during the first several months of the pandemic. It captures the band members building their new studio (“We’re six skinny, scrawny musos, but we got our hands dirty,” frontman Stu Mackenzie said) and recording the album Changes, work on which began in 2017 but was finally released in October 2022. “It’s definitely part of the Changes world and sits alongside it.”
