Trailer Released for Upcoming Documentary on 90s Alt Rock Band Failure

A new trailer for an upcoming documentary centered on 90s alternative rock band Failure was recently released. The lengthy trailer gives a sneak peek into the doc, which also features interviews with rockers like Hayley Williams, Tommy Lee Jones, Maynard James Keenan, and others.

Just to recall, Failure is an American alternative rock group hailing from Los Angeles. They were active from 1990 to 1997 and from 2014 to present day. They have released six full-length albums and five EPs.

The untitled documentary based around Failure's career has been in the works since 2018: when the band requested that fans send them live footage of themselves from the '90s. On March 31, Failure released a seven-minute extended trailer for the film, which includes interview snippets of Paramore frontwoman Williams, Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman Keenan, Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe, Butch Vig of Garbage, Troy Sanders of Mastodon, actor Jason Schwartzman, Margaret Cho, Troy Van Leeuwen, and more.

“The art that Failure has made is very authentic to me,” says Troy Sanders. “In a world of rock ‘n’ roll, I wouldn’t be where I am right now if it weren’t for bands like Failure.”

"It was the same feeling that I had as a 14 year old," Hayley Williams says, describing the first time she listened to Failure's music. "Y'know, that wall hit me. And, like, you feel it. Y'know, my heart was racing. And's just the best feeling."

In addition to interviews, the trailer is packed with images and clips backed by some of the band’s best-known songs, such as "Stuck On You," "Another Space Song," "Counterfeit Sky," and "Hot Traveler."

The documentary is set for release in 2023, though a 30-minute version will be screened at shows on Failure’s summer U.S. tour prior to the band taking the stage. Find more info about the tour on Failure's website.

In other Failure news, the band joined Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and more artists in removing their discography from Spotify back in February. This was due to the COVID-19 controversy involving Joe Rogan, as well as the streaming platform’s business model.
