VOIVOD’s long-awaited official documentary ‘We Are Connected’ to premiere at festivals this summer

Canadian prog-metal stars VOIVOD have launched a new Kickstarter campaign to help fund their official documentary film.

Formed unexpectedly in northern Québec at the height of the Cold War, VOIVOD’s post-apocalyptic sci-fi aesthetic, fuelled by a youthful obsession with their instruments, has taken them from underground success to sharing tours and stages with IRON MAIDEN, RUSH, and METALLICA. Of course, these 40 years have had their ups and downs, from major label support and Billboard recognition to seismic line-up changes and an event that many critics claim was the end of VOIVOD: The death of founding guitarist and composer Dennis “Piggy” D’Amour.

VOIVOD has joined forces with metal film director Felipe Belalcázar for the band’s official documentary “We Are Connected”.

VOIVOD states: “The goal of our latest Kickstarter campaign was to bring the epic story of VOIVOD to the big screen in a theatrical cut that will be screened at festivals and events this summer. Thanks to your unwavering support, we have completed filming and editing and are now diving deep into post-production to create a masterpiece worthy of Voivodians around the world.

“But that’s not all – as a token of our gratitude, we are offering limited edition, premium T-shirts, each featuring unique artwork by the legendary Away in collaboration with Felipe.

– Chewy’s T-Shirt: A rare ink drawing from ‘The Outer Limits’ era in 1993, never before seen and now brought to life.

– Snake and Rocky’s Shirt: A 2002 ink masterpiece from the booklet of the self-titled 2003 album.

– Away’s Shirt: Iconic Mercury symbol inked in 1997 for the ‘Phobos’ booklet.

“By supporting our campaign, you are not only helping us cross the finish line of the documentary, but you are also securing a piece of the VOIVOD legend for yourself. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to wear your VOIVOD pride and be part of music history.”

Belalcázar has a proven track record of delivering quality productions to millions of metal fans worldwide, most recently the critically acclaimed Chuck Schuldiner documentary “Death By Metal”.

VOIVOD is currently on tour in North America with PRONG.

VOIVOD is touring in support of his latest album “Morgoth Tales”, released through Century Media, The Orchard and Sony Music.
