ROCK FUEL MEDIA
ANNOUNCES RELEASES OF DVDS FROM
KORN, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, JANE’S ADDICTION AND GUNS ‘N ROSES
MORE ARTISTS EXPECTED TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON
ROCK FUEL MEDIA is excited to announce the first releases in a new series of state-of-the-art DVDs by four iconic rock groups: Guns ‘N Roses, Korn, The Smashing Pumpkins (all available in 3D) and Jane’s Addiction.
The first releases will be The Smashing Pumpkins and Jane’s Addiction. Set to hit stores June 25, the live concert films show the bands in their full glory, filmed by ROCK FUEL specifically for the viewing audience in mind. “It’s a thrilling time in home theater technology,” says ROCK FUEL’s founder and President BARRY SUMMERS. “3D TVs have really taken hold of the marketplace but there’s a lack of live music content for fans to watch at home. We’re changing that.” Summers is in negotiations with various music TV outlets for small screen showings as well as cinema chains for theatrical releases. “These concert experiences are great for the big screen with a loud crowd, as well as the privacy of your own home,” adds Summers.
The Smashing Pumpkins’ OCEANIA: 3D IN NYC was filmed in 3D last December at New York City’s Barclays Arena, where the group performed their new Oceania album in its entirety, along with a selection of the band’s biggest hits. The PUMPKINS’ shows included visuals prepared by Sean Evans, whose most recent project was assisting Roger Waters on the newest staging of “The Wall.” THE PUMPKINS used new technology in video-mapping to create something new and previously unseen, all of which expertly captured in 3D.
JANE’S ADDICTION: LIVE IN NYC was filmed July 2011 at Terminal 5, as LG Mobile and the alternative rock pioneers made innovation history with the world’s first 3D user-generated. Equipped with a stunning 360° stage that allowed for surround-sound and panoramic viewing, the concert featured music throughout Jane’s Addiction’s career including “Whores,” “Been Caught Stealing,” “Ocean Size,” “Jane Says,” and from their latest full-length album The Great Escape Artist, the single “Irresistible Force.”
The GUNS ‘N ROSES: APPETITE FOR DEMOCRACY IN 3D concert was filmed in 3D November 21, 2012, during GNR’s highly successful, sold-out 12-date “Appetite For Democracy” residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The 20-song, two-hour plus show covers their entire career and is signature GNR bombast, replete with a flying piano that carries frontman Axl Rose out over the audience during “November Rain.” The 3D experience brings fans right into the arena from the opening riff of “Welcome To The Jungle” through the spectacular final of “Paradise City.” Check out the trailer here: http://rockfuel.com/#!guns-n-roses/
“Korn: Live At The Hollywood Palladium” celebrates the release of their tenth studio album, The Path Of Totality. This performance showcases the band in top form, highlighting songs such as “Freak On A Leash” and “Falling Away From Me” as well as new smash hits including “Get Up!” and “Narcissistic Cannibal.” Joining Korn onstage were several of the DJs who collaborated on The Path Of Totality including Skrillex, 12th Planet, Flinch, Downlink, Excision, Datsik and Kill The Noise. ROCK FUEL expects KORN: LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM to be seen in theaters this summer, and the DVD is in stores now.
