Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) Shares Trailer For “What Drives Us” Documentary

Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) has shared a new trailer for his upcoming documentary “What Drives Us.” The film, which “explores motivations, recounts personal anecdotes, and explores the physical and psychological toll of touring in vans via interviews with members of van tour veteran bands,” will be released on April 30 through Amazon’s “The Coda Collection.” Grohl commented:

“This film is my love letter to every musician that has ever jumped in an old van with their friends and left it all behind for the simple reward of playing music. What started as a project to pull back the curtain on the DIY logistics of stuffing all of your friends and equipment into a small space for months on end eventually turned into an exploration of “why?” What drives us?”

New Life Of Agony Documentary “The Sound Of Scars” To Premiere In April

Director Leigh Brooks (“Terrorvision: Wired Up and Scary”) commented:

“This isn’t a typical music documentary. It’s as personal as it gets. I first saw the band live at the London Astoria in 1996. Since then, LOA has become an absolute go-to when I felt alone and insecure about myself. This film is an intimate portrait that sheds light on the real life stories that make their music so vital and relevant.”

Vocalist Mina Caputo continued:

“We’ve never avoided tough conversations and we don’t pretend to have all the answers. But, this film is a roadmap with many great lessons. It shows a ton of vulnerability… moments of falling downward and others where we rise strong. Enjoy this gift of imperfection. May you find the tools to be braver with this film.”

Guitarist Joey Zampella added:

“We’ve completely ripped our deepest selves open for this film. The audience and our fan base will completely understand the mold we were broken from, and what this journey means to us.”

The following was also said in a press release:

”The Sound of Scars‘ utilizes personal archive footage, rare photographs, and lost interviews, along with new, never-before-seen conversations with the band and their family members that tells the story of how three friends overcame domestic violence, substance abuse, and depression to form one of the most influential bands in its genre.

Through the success of their groundbreaking 1993 debut ‘River Runs Red‘, hailed by Rolling Stone as ‘One of the Greatest Metal Albums of All Time’, they channeled their cumulative life stories into a soundtrack for a broken generation. At the time, that newfound fame allowed them to escape the tragedies of their pasts, but in the wake of their accomplishments, unforeseen obstacles arose.

The 90-minute film also takes a deep dive into lead vocalist Mina Caputo’s gender transition.”

Watch Trailer For “Twisted Sister: Breaking The Band”

A new trailer has been released for “Twisted Sister: Breaking The Band.” That show will premiere tomorrow (February 6) at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on Reelz. Here’s a description of it:

“In 1984, Twisted Sister were one of the biggest heavy metal bands on the planet with the world at their feet. After a decade battling to get to the top, this Long Island bar band were hailed as the new rock gods of MTV but their crash and burn would be spectacular! Told by the band themselves and their lead singer, the voice of ‘Breaking The Band’, Dee Snider. This is a cautionary tale of how ego, overexposure and intra-band tension would rip the group apart. Revealing the true story behind the split of rock and roll’s most outrageous, heavily made up and beloved acts, this is ‘Breaking The Band’: Twisted Sister.”

Watch New Trailer For Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) Documentary “Truth To Power”

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) documentary “Truth To Power.” That film is set to be released on February 19.

Here’s a description of the documentary:

“Millions fill stadiums across the world for the sound of Serj Tankian, the Grammy-winning lead singer of System Of A Down. With exclusive interviews, adventures, and original footage personally filmed by Serj, TRUTH TO POWER allows audiences backstage access to an international rock star whose faith in music not only revolutionized heavy metal, but also world events. Throughout his life, the musician has pursued social justice, harnessing the power of his songs and celebrity for real political change. Serj’s voice is equally likely to take on American corporate greed as lambast the corrupt regime of his homeland. His decades-long campaign for formal U.S. recognition of the Armenian Genocide was finally approved by Congress last year. Governments hate him. People love him.

Set to the propulsions of an original soundtrack composed by Serj, his critically acclaimed solo work, as well as the iconic music of System Of A Down, TRUTH TO POWER is also an artist portrait with a revealing look at the musician as he writes music—from inception to recording—and pursues ambitions outside of the band. It includes memories from legendary producer Rick Rubin on System Of A Down’s early years and its unlikely breakthrough, the bandmates’ candid insights about the splinters and highpoints for the group, and stories from Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello on his bond with Serj as social justice advocates and their “Axis of Justice” nonprofit.

Film features new music from the upcoming Serj Tankian EP “Elasticity” coming soon on Alchemy Recordings.

A film by Garin Hovannisian
Executive Produced by Joe Berlinger

Available in Virtual Cinemas worldwide starting February 19th, 2021.”
