PENTAGRAM: 'Last Days Here' SXSW Screenings Announced

Metal Blade Records will be invading Austin, Texas this March as a part of the South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and Festival, with bands playing at various showcases. Fans will also have the chance to catch the world premier of the PENTAGRAM film "Last Days Here" on three separate days.

Metal Blade Records artists playing SXSW this year include PENTAGRAM, WHITECHAPEL, THE RED CHORD, ACROSS THE SUN, and DAWN OF ASHES. PENTAGRAM, who is rumored to be playing a secret surprise show on Friday, March 18, will perform with its current lineup, featuring Bobby Liebling, Victor Griffin, Greg Turley, and Virginia's Albert Born as the group's new drummer.

"Last Days Here" tells the story of Bobby Liebling, lead singer of the cult hard rock/heavy metal band PENTAGRAM. Frozen for decades in his parents' basement, Bobby's music is finally discovered by the heavy metal underground. With the help of Sean "Pellet" Pelletier, his friend and manager, Bobby attempts to overcome years of addiction, loneliness, and broken dreams. Intimate, raw, and unexpectedly funny, "Last Days Here" portrays the unbelievable journey of a man at the crossroads of life and death.

The film was produced by 9.14 Pictures, an independent production company that specializes in documentary films. The film was directed by Don Argott and Demian Fenton and produced by Sheena M. Joyce. The company's filmography includes last year's critically acclaimed "The Art Of The Steal", "Two Days In April" and "Rock School".

"Last Days Here" is in the "Featured Documentary" competition and is up against seven other documentaries which were chosen out of the 808 submitted.

"Last Days Here" screenings:

Monday, March 14 - 4:30 p.m. @ Vimeo Theatre -World Premiere
Tuesday, March 15 - 2 p.m. @ Alamo Lamar C
Friday, March 18 - 4:30 p.m. @ Vimeo Theatre
