King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have released their new single ‘Sleep Drifter’ from their up and coming album ‘Flying Microtonal Banana.’
Talking about the idea behind ‘Flying Microtonal Banana’, Eric Moore of the band said:
“Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu. 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 band return to Europe this summer for festival shows & their biggest London and Manchester shows to date.
