California punks OFF! have announced that they are working on a new documentary called Watermelon: A Sci-Fi Punk Rockumentary. The trailer for the upcoming film, shows just how dysfunctional the band has become, and how getting old and touring can take a toll on both the music and the band. The official description of the film reads: “The movie, which began shooting in 2016, continues in Los Angeles five heartbreaking years after OFF! have disbanded. Keith’s hopes of landing the girl of his dreams are crushed when diabetes-induced erectile dysfunction threatens his last chance at romance. An infomercial promising powerful long-lasting erections lures Keith down a strange path to an eccentric doctor running a Brain Development Agency.”
Check out the trailer for the new film here.
OFF! have also announced that a coinciding album will be released with the documentary. The bands last release was Wasted Years back in 2014. With punk rock veterans Jello Biafra, Henry Rollins, Buzz Osborne and Joe Keithly all appearing in the film, at the very least it promises to be entertaining.
