Lamb of God’s ‘As the Palaces Burn’ Czech Trial Documentary to Premiere Feb. 16 in Philadelphia
The story of Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe's Czech arrest, imprisonment and manslaughter trial is finally set to be told. The band's 'As the Palaces Burn' documentary will debut in Philadelphia on Feb. 16 and will be shown in over 350 theaters worldwide shortly after.
The premiere of 'As the Palaces Burn' will take place at Philadelphia's Trocadero Theater on Feb. 16. The event will be much more than just a simple screening. A total of 800 people will be admitted into the Trocadero Theater with 50 VIP packages available, which will include a meet and greet with Lamb of God prior to the film's showing. After the film's conclusion, a 30-minute Q&A session with Lamb of God and the documentary's director Don Argott will be shown, hosted by Eddie Trunk of 'That Metal Show.'
"'As the Palaces Burn' is a feature-length documentary that originally sought to follow the band and their fans throughout the world, to demonstrate how music ties us together when we can’t find any other common bond," an official statement reads. "However, during the filming process in 2012, the story abruptly took a dramatic turn, bringing the band into a Kafkaesque nightmare, when lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested on charges of manslaughter, blamed for the death of one of their young fans in the Czech Republic. What followed was a heart-wrenching courtroom drama that left fans, friends, and curious onlookers around the world on the edge of their seats."
In addition to the worldwide theater release of 'As the Palaces Burn,' 13 North American clubs will be screening the film. See the full list of clubs below.
