Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada traditional metallers 3 INCHES OF BLOOD will film their May 21 and May 22 hometown shows for their first-ever concert DVD.
Commented vocalist Cam Pipes: "May 21 and 22 will surely be a couple of the most monumental days in the history of 3 INCHES OF BLOOD. Not only are we playing back-to-back shows in our hometown at one the most promising new venues Vancouver has seen in a long time, but we will be filming both shows for a future live DVD release.
"The excitement amongst the band is feverish. We relish the opportunity to play in front of a home crowd because it reminds us who supported us in the early stages.
"To make these shows even more special, we're going to play different sets on each night.
"We hope everyone will remember these shows for years to come. We will certainly do our best to make them fun and memorable."
