King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Rattlesnake

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Rattlesnake
After adding an ARIA for Best Hard Rock / Heavy Metal Album for Nonagon Infinity to their swag of awards from Age Victoria Music Awards and J Awards in the last week, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard embark on their very own festival, Gizzfest, starting in Brisbane. On top of that, side shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

Flying Microtonal Banana is King Gizzard’s first-ever experience in microtonal tuning, which features intervals smaller than a semitone and not found in customary Western tuning octaves.

"Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu,” explains drummer Eric Moore. “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."

About this track...

'Rattlesnake' is the first track available from Flying Microtonal Banana, the band’s first LP of 2017. The Melbourne-based band plan to release five studio albums in 2017, an ambitious feat as each record will be its own unique sonic adventure.
