Having already tucked an album under their belts this year, relentless Australian psych outift King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have just announced a plan to release FIVE studio albums in 2017. Each record is set to be based around a different sonic experiment, with the first being their foray into microtonal tuning. In a press release drummer Eric Moore explained further:


“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.
