DEATH BAND DOCUMENTARY
More than four decades after Detroit-based garage/protopunk band Death's inception, only now is their story being released to the world. As history has it, the band, comprised of three brothers (Bobby, David and Dannis Hackney), shopped their demo around in the 70's until they could shop it no more. The music industry at the time wanted Motown and unfortunately their sound was far from it. But all wasn't lost thanks to a 2009 independent release of their original demo tape. It was a hit and this rediscovery became the catalyst for the band's ultimate return. This is the story of A Band Called Death, now featured in a full-length documentary produced by Drafthouse Films. Hitting theaters June 28th, 2013.
