The Dangerous Summer Release Statement About Kickstarter Funds


Fans of the Dangerous Summer thought that back in 2012, it would be a great way to show support for the band by donating money to their Kickstarter campaign. The campaign was to raise $14,000 to fund a documentary in April of 2012, but not it’s 2014 and those fans have not seen the release of the DVD, or at least the official version of it.

Property of Zack had managed to get their hands on some of the “lost” footage from the documentary, but other than that, there has been nothing. Today, the band or more like guitarist Cody Payne, have finally felt the fire from the fans and have released a statement about the footage and the DVD.

The full statement from Payne can be read below:

“Sorry for letting you all down, this is 100% my fault and I understand the hate, disappointment and speculation. Just please try and understand how hard it is making a DVD when you have never done it and there were a lot of things that went unaccounted for when planning this thing.

This is not something we can simply refund as the money raised was used to make the DVD which the original version (which we personally were not satisfied with and wanted to redo) has been released in segments online at and if you would like to listen to the hour long concert it is available at I have learned that some people do not have any appreciation for artistic integrity and are simply consumers with needy hands.

Due to all the complaints we are just going to be releasing the original version. Most of the prizes, especially the more expensive ones have been fulfilled and more will continue to be fulfilled as I can come up with the funds out of my personal wallet. This may take some time but this is my fault and im going to have to take responsibility. once again sorry for letting you down,

Cody Payne”

Suicide Silence Release Mitch Lucker Documentary


When Suicide Silence’s frontman, Mitch Lucker, passed away last year, their fans were first mourning his death and then began to wonder what would become of the California-based band.

After taking what was almost a full year off to figure out how to continue, they eventually returned with the news that they would be releasing new music and would continue as a band with a new vocalist, Hernan “Eddie” Hermida of All Shall Perish.

Today, the band released a 30-minute documentary about their late frontman which includes early footage of the band during their career as well as interviews with Lucker’s parents and pictures of when he was younger. The full documentary can be seen below.

As for Suicide Silence, the band have confirmed that they would be releasing the footage of Mitch Lucker’s memorial show titled, Ending is the Beginning: The Mitch Lucker Memorial Show, on CD/DVD/Blu-ray on February 18, 2014. As for new music, they have also confirmed that their fourth studio album is scheduled to be released sometime during the Summer of 2014.

Nine Inch Nails Document Their Comeback


This has definitely turned out to be the week of Nine Inch Nails. On Tuesday, they let fans listen to their new album in full on iTunes for free. Yesterday, they revealed that there will be an audiophile version of Hesitation Marks coming out as well, but it would in no way challenge the original; rather it’s a different take on it.

Today, they have come back with a more great news for their fans; there’s a 13-minute documentary about the comeback tour.  Nine Inch Nails had teamed up with Vevo to record everything that it took for the band to make their comeback especially with a new line-up. The documentary is made up of interviews with Trent Reznor and the other band members, the band’s art director Rob Sheridan, and more in the days leading up to NIN’s performance at this year’s Fuji Rock in Tokyo.

The documentary can be seen here and don’t forget, as if you could at this rate, Hesitation Marks comes out on September 3, but if you want you can head on over to iTunes and listen to it for free.


The Postal Service Post Documentary Online


The Postal Service have been having a hell of a year so far with Give Up turning ten and that reunion tour that they were on. Now, thanks to The Creators Project, the band have released the mini-movie for fans to watch titled, Some Idealistic Future.

Check out the documentary below and tell us how you feel about it, especially if you had the chance to see the twosome perform live on this tour.

Nine Inch Nails Release Documentary Online

Nine Inch Nails

Nine Inch Nails frontman, Trent Reznor recently announced that his band, with a brand new line-up, will be heading out on a massive tour.

Now, Reznor has released a 75 minute documentary which shows the behind-the-scenes of NIN’s 1994-1996 “Self Destruct” tour. The documentary can be found at the band’s Tumblr page which before was only found in the 1997 Closure VHS (yes, I did say VHS). In a disclaimer like note, Reznor warns that the video contains some NSFW content as well as special appearances by Marilyn Manson and David Bowie.

Reznor also posted another rarity that many fans of the industrial band would like, an acoustic performance of “The Becoming” from the band’s 1994 release, The Downward Spiral. The performance was filmed at Nothing Studios in New Orleans in 2002 with Trent Reznor, Danny Lohner, and Jerome Dillon and was directed by Rob Sheridan, according to the note attached.

But that didn’t end Rezonr’s generous gift for the fans. He also included two more videos from the Still series, “Something I Can Never Have” and “Gone Still.”

The new, revamped Nine Inch Nails is slated to start touring in the Summer, with a US arena tour starting in the Fall and a full world tour starting in 2014.

To see all the videos, head on over to Nine Inch Nails’ Tumblr page here.

The Beatles Give Permission for Use of Four Songs

Freda and Paul

Getting approval to use any Beatles’ track for something is a mission on its own (when Tomorrow Never Knows was used in Mad Men, AMC spent a reported $250,000) but somehow director Ryan White was able to do the impossible and got approval to use four tracks in his upcoming South By Southwest documentary.

The documentary, Good Ol’ Freda, tells thee story of Freda Kelly who was the iconic band’s secretary for 11 years. She was the one who took care of The Beatles’ fan club and everything else that they needed to get done. This isn’t the first time though that Kelly had been asked to be the subject of a documentary, but she kindly declined.

White says that the reason that she finally agreed to do the film with him was because she wanted to do it for her young grandson; she believes that it would be somewhat of a home video for him. He adds that the fact that Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and the estates of both John Lennon and George Harrison allowed him to use four of their track in the documentary shows how much of an important asset Kelly was to the band.

White documentary will premiere on March 9 at SXSW.

Backstreet Boys Documentary in the Works

Backstreet Boys

The Backstreet Boys weren’t kidding when they said, “Backstreet’s back!” The 90’s boy band have revealed that they will be the subject of a new film by Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile). Like most documentaries, the film will concentrate on the band’s rise to super-stardom and continue throughout their career, not leaving a single stone unturned.

“We always wanted to make a film and now is the ideal time – with Kevin back, the fact that we are masters of our own destiny, a new album in the works and our 20th anniversary all adds up to being the right time to share our story,” the band said in a statement.

Looks like a lot of teen girls who grew up in the 90’s will be checking out this film which should be completed sometime in the Fall. In the mean time, the band will be concentrating on their upcoming 20th anniversary world tour as well as new album.
