King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Unleash Single 'Self-Immolate' + Video

Wednesday 29th May, 2019 12:31PM

Australia’s most prolific psych-rock collective King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have shared ‘Self-Immolate’, a brooding audio-visual combo which is worlds away from their April release Fishing For Fishes. The tune comprises of chugging triplet rhythms and pounding double kicks recalling early Slayer, Metallica and Whiplash, seeing the musically diverse band continuing to lean into the throwback thrash metal sounds of earlier single ‘Planet B’. The fierce track comes accompanied by a macabre video from director John Angus Stewart, depicting each member of King Gizz being burnt alive in a satanic ritual. Read Stewart’s in-dept elaboration of the clip’s creative direction and experience the warming flames of ‘Self-Immolate’ below...

“The offerers were sent to hell. But what was only a few moments on earth, were over 500 years for the offerers. Zagan, summons them back to earth to keep her side of the bargain. The offerers are shadows of what they once were after lifetimes served in the spiralling, stinking pits of Hell. They have forgotten existence without constant agony, searing heat and torture. They quiver and shake, terrified of a place they once only knew but now cannot conceive. Zagan performs the ritual of reanimation, possessing them with a half-life. The offerers, vomit and choke as the petrol fills their lungs. To complete the re-animation ritual they must self-immolate to cauterise their new form. They turned to hell with a blind, idealistic, altruistic hope, but now they have become the anthropomorphised doom and fire that will consume the earth itself.”

'Self-Immolate' is out now via Flightless Records.
