A 40-plus minute documentary on the band Old Man Gloom can be seen in its entirety at the end of this post.
The band, boasting members of Cave In, Converge and Isis, is the subject of “Old Man Gloom: Here Is A Gift For You,” which was released today by Kenneth Thomas.
Frontman Aaron Turner says the short film chronicles the band up to the making of their new album, The Ape Of God, which drops November 11.
“It is actually kind of everything up to that record. Our friend Kenneth Thomas filmed some of our shows because he was a fan of the band and was excited when we were active again. That was the seed for the film. He did some impromptu interviews with us around those shows and felt like he had some good material, so he suggested putting something together.
“We gave him a few more ideas of other things that might be good for inclusion and just let him run with it. So, in a way it’s sort of like a history or an encapsulation of the band’s existence up to the point of making The Ape of God. All the footage pre-dates the existence of that record.”
