Documentary Film About The Snake The Cross The Crown Coming Soon
Long dormant Americana/folk band The Snake The Cross The Crown are the subject of a new documentary film called On A Carousel of Sound, We Go Round.
During their last tour in the summer of 2007, filmmaker Nicholas Kleczewski traveled with the band and captured on film the end of an era for the group. After releasing two critically acclaimed yet relatively unknown albums – 2004’s Mander Salis and 2007’s Cotton Teeth – the five members of The Snake The Cross The Crown found themselves spread across the country; some members going back to school, others holding odd jobs to pay the bills.
Unable to relentlessly tour and promote, yet unwilling to let go of their passion for creating music together, The Snake The Cross The Crown were at a major turning point for themselves as a band, and as individuals.
On A Carousel of Sound… is premiering this Friday, October 2nd at the Louisville International Festival of Film, and will hopefully be showcased at many more festivals in the future.
On October 13th, Equal Vision Records and The Techtronic Rocket Society will be packaging the 75-minute DVD together with a 14-song CD of b-sides and newer recordings, and releasing the two-disc set exclusively through The Snake The Cross The Crown’s webstore.
Watch the extended trailer at the official website.
