‘The Blasting Room’ Documentary Launches Kickstarter

Film Explores Legendary Punk Rock Studio Started By Members of Descendents/ALL

Over the last 27 years, some of the biggest names in punk music have trusted a tiny, bare-bones, space in Fort Collins, Colorado to record, mix and master their stuff. The Blasting Room, a new documentary from Static Age Productions and Kreativ Media, tells the story of that legendary studio and is offering exclusive giveaways for music fans who support the film.

In 1994, tired of the polluted, expensive, congested Los Angeles area, members of the band ALL took the advance cash they received from their record label and bought an old furniture warehouse to use as their musical home base. Before long, punk’s biggest acts were sweetening their sounds at the Blasting Room. The documentary features decades of never-before-seen behind-the-scenes photos and video, plus interviews with members of more than 25 groups, including Descendents, ALL, Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Good Riddance, NOFX, Less Than Jake, Hot Water Music and Lagwagon.

With the launch of the film’s Kickstarter campaign, fans can get their hands on exclusive merch, rare releases, and signed stuff. Perks for backers include a brand-new vinyl compilation of favorite recordings from the Blasting Room staff, including an exclusive song by the Descendents only available through the campaign.

“Just like the studio, the documentary is very DIY,” says producer and cinematographer Kevin Kirchner. “With a crew made up of friends and fans of the studio, the production team is counting on music fans to help bring the story to life and put it on the stage it deserves.”
