Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols or the Ramones, there was a band called Death. Punk before punk existed, three teenage brothers in the early ’70s formed a band, played a few local gigs, and pressed a single in the hopes of getting signed. But record companies found Death’s music — and band name — too intimidating, and the group soon disbanded.

Equal parts rockumentary and family love story, A Band Called Death chronicles the incredible journey of what happened three decades later, when a dusty 1974 demo tape made its way out of the attic and found an audience several generations younger.
