DESPISED ICON Performs On BANDE À PART's 'Les Sessions'; Video Available

November 29, 2008

Bande À Part, an indie music initiative in Quebec, Canada, has uploaded a 32-minute episode of "Les Sessions" featuring Montreal extreme metallers DESPISED ICON. The footage, which was recorded before a live audience on October 29, 2008 at studio 14 in Maison Radio-Canada in Montréal, can be viewed at this location.

DESPISED ICON will release its first DVD, "Montreal Assault Live", on January 27 via Century Media. The disc features a "stellar" multi-camera shoot from the band's sold-out hometown show, alongside a new hour-long documentary and all of the band's promotional video clips.

A live version of the track "The Ills of Modern Man" taken from the forthcoming DVD is available for steaming on the band's MySpace page.

Commented vocalist Alex Erian: "The 'Montreal Assault Live' DVD is finally complete! The live mix sounds so massive. It was done by none other than our former guitarist Yannick St-Amand. You can even listen to it in 5.1 Surround. Our buddy Felix also created some of his sickest artwork yet.

"The shooting and editing of the show went awesome. David Brodsky (IN THIS MOMENT, UNEARTH) and his team captured tons of adrenaline-packed moments.

"On January 27, you'll be able to relive the live action, the stage dives, the circle pits, the kicking and the screaming that made this 'Montreal Assault' hometown show a night to remember. The DVD also includes a new hour long documentary by Reconstructed Media that retraces the band's career, showing never-before-seen footage of us living on the road, hanging out, partying, recording, playing shows back in the day and more."
