“Before there was punk, there was a band called Death.” Death is a band that’s now referred to as protopunk, basically meaning they were punk rock before punk rock existed. Basically meaning that they’re super cool and were super cool before it was cool to be cool …. or something.
A Band Called Death is a documentary being distributed by Drafthouse Films by directors Jeff Howlett and Mark Covino about the influential group. From what I hear it’s a pretty fun doc to watch. Our own Hubert also got to meet and interview Death at this year’s SXSW Film Festival and got to interview them about the movie and their lives. A Band Called Death will be coming to select theaters on June 28th!
