Often pushing new level's of ingenuity in terms of distributing their music/media, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have once again revealed a new scheme to get budding videographers to make DIY music videos for new single 'Automation'.

The Aussie psych sextet have made all the raw video files available for fans to edit, warp, and mould around their own music video vision.

'Automation', a typically tongue-in-cheek tale of dystopian AI autocracy will now ironically side-step the algorithmic homogeny of music video-making, because of the (likely) countless submissions presenting different ideas made from the same visual source. 

It's not the first time King Gizz have made their raw material available for community consumption, having released the stems for album Polygondwanaland so that independent record labels could use the master tapes how they wished, rather than selling the album via the standard methods. 

Check out their website for more info, and let's see what 'zany' versions you can come up with.
