a-band-called-death

Last summer, Detroit protopunk outfit Death were given the documentary treatment by Mark Covino and Jeff Howlett. Their film, A Band Called Death, then screened at SXSW 2013, where the group also performed at a BrooklynVegan day party. A Band Called Death has since seen a digital release and will make its way to select movie theaters across the United States on Friday, June 28. In Chicago, that means you’ll be able to catch the film at the Music Box. The theater currently have three-screenings listed – June 28 at 4PM, June 29 at 8PM, and July 2 at 9:45PM – and maybe more will be added soon. Advance tickets are on sale now.

In celebration of the film’s limited release, we’re also giving away a Death t-shirt. It’s modeled after the ones the band made in the ’70s, and you can see a picture of the updated version at the bottom of this post.

All screening dates, a trailer for the film, contest details, and a picture of the t-shirt are below…
