We already know that King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are one of Australia’s most prolific bands, putting out such a steady stream of releases that they always seem to have an ‘upcoming album’ in the works.

The band recently unveiled their eagerly anticipated eighth studio album, Nonagon Infinity, which in addition to being effectively endless (the album can be played on an infinite loop), boasts even more secrets.

The band recently debuted their latest music video, ‘People Vultures’, accompanying the clip with the news that there will be a Nonagon Infinity album movie set to premiere later in the year some time.

The Melbourne group dropped the first single to be taken from Nonagon Infinity, the raucous ‘Gamma Knife’, back in March, accompanying the release with an Alejandro Jodorowsky-inspired music video.

The clip for ‘People Vultures’ picks up right where that clip leaves off – after the band, dressed as monks in pastel-coloured robes, commit ritual suicide. According to the band, it’s “Part IV in the Nonagon Infinity album movie set to be released in late 2016.”

Dangerous Minds, who premiered the ‘People Vultures’ clip, confirmed that King Gizzard have gone and done a Beyonce and fans will soon be able to scour the internet hunting down copies of a Nonagon Infinity movie.

In the meantime, you can check out the clip for ‘People Vultures’ below. According to co-directors Danny Cohen and Jason Galea, the different characters the titular vulture fights in the clip are all “plucked from the tracks on Nonagon Infinity“.

“With the vulture fully assembled and all the band members inside, it weighed over a tonne and was difficult to move safely across the rough terrain without breaking or toppling over,” they told Dangerous Minds.

“[Frontman] Stu [Mackenzie] had the daunting job of being inside the vulture’s neck and head with only a small railing to battle the vertigo and bumps as the vulture slowly moved.”
