Belgium dance-rock collective Soulwax will release a documentary Part of the Weekend Never Dies on DVD this summer.
Filmed by Saam Farahmand, the documentary includes behind the scenes footage of the group plus interviews and snippets of indie/rock dance hybrids James Murphy, Nancy Whang, Erol Alkan, Tiga, Justice, Busy P, So-Me, Peaches and Klaxons.
"Where the Beastie Boys filmed one gig with 50 cameras, we filmed 120 shows with one camera in Europe, Japan, US, Latin America and Australia," says the band. In addition to the documentary, a second film of live concert footage from their Soulwax Nite Versions tour was also made.
Check out the trailer below:
Soulwax are currently touring across Europe with rendezvouses planned with the likes of Riton, Ladyhawke, Goose and Vitalic. Preview film screenings of the documentary will also take place at the selected tour dates below.
'Part of the Weekend Never Dies' is released in August 2008.
