A new documentary about Old Man Gloom that details the band’s history leading up to the making of their latest effort The Ape Of God. The film, titled Old Man Gloom: Here Is A Gift For You, was put together by the band’s friend Kenneth Thomas and was released via Noisey. Frontman Aaron Turner spoke to Noisey about the feature saying:
“It is actually kind of everything up to that record. Our friend Kenneth Thomas filmed some of our shows because he was a fan of the band and was excited when we were active again. That was the seed for the film. He did some impromptu interviews with us around those shows and felt like he had some good material, so he suggested putting something together.
We gave him a few more ideas of other things that might be good for inclusion and just let him run with it. So, in a way it’s sort of like a history or an encapsulation of the band’s existence up to the point of making The Ape of God. All the footage pre-dates the existence of that record.”
