An intimate and fiery rock documentary tracing the rise and fall of Rye Coalition
Premieres May 30, 2014 at the New Jersey Film Festival & June 8 in NYC
Foo Fighters). After gaining momentum from 2002′s “On Top” LP, engineered by
Steve Albini, they were signed to Dreamworks Records and none other than Dave Grohl (Nirvana) came on as their producer. Then, it all imploded.
The filmmaker has continuously documented these singular rockers for over a decade, brazenly chronicling choice moments with Rye Coalition (and those who know them well)
on tour, at home and in the studio. Although the band was praised by critics and supported by an absurdly dedicated grassroots fan base, somehow these Jersey rockers never got their due. Until now. Dir: Jenni Matz, 2014; 77 minutes.
Featuring: Steve Albini (Shellac), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses), Jon Theodore (Mars Volta), Jared Warren (Melvins).
