BANG TANGO Documentary: First 'Theatrical' Trailer Released

Veteran hard rockers BANG TANGO, along with videographer Drew Fortier, are working on a documentary of the band for release later this year. Tentatively titled "The Bang Tango Movie", the documentary will contain interviews with current and original BANG TANGO members as well as most of the in-betweeners who have performed with the group over the years. The film will explore the history of the band and what the original members are up to now, but for the most part it will give insight into the recording of the group's latest release, 2011's "Pistol Whipped In The Bible Belt".

"The movie is still being pieced together, I have just about everything I need for it," Fortier tells "I am extremely happy with how everything is going. It has been such an experience and a joy shooting everything — over 100 hours of footage that I have gone through, logged, etc. Now is the hard part, editing this monster together. But bottom line, I hope this movie will be able to reach not just fans of the band, but also people who are fans of a cool story and just fans of being entertained."

Regarding a possible release date of the film, Fortier said, "I'd like to pull an Axl Rose and just say 'soon is the word,' but I'm not trying to make 'Chinese Democracy' here. I'd like to say I'll be done editing in about a month, and after that I'll be trying to find an outlet for this thing — hopefully some film festivals."

When asked if the film could lead to a reunion of the original BANG TANGO band, Fortier commented, "I think it may pull on some of the original member's heart strings, just reliving everything — I mean, this movie is pretty much a documented tale of their past and achievements. There's still some loose ends to their career which is addressed in the film and I think this whole thing might just reignite something. It would be the most flattering thing as a filmmaker if they did... but of course, if not, everybody has their own careers right now and are very happy. Joe LeSte's got his BANG TANGO, Mark Knight has his UNSUNG HEROES project (which also includes Tigg Ketler), Kyle Kyle has MONA LISA OVERDRIVE, and Kyle Stevens is about to put a trio together. So everyone is still very active in music and happy."
