March 25, 2008 – MONEEN announces the release of their first long-form DVD, The Moneen DVD: It All Started With A Red Stripe due out on May 13, 2008 (Vagrant).
The DVD compiles more than two hours of footage of the Brampton, Ontario quartet including fans first look at the Alex Liu-directed documentary film “The Start To This May Be The End To Another” that delves into the tenuous period the band experienced creating their 2006 release, The Red Tree.
Additionally, the DVD features multiple ‘easter eggs’, band-created artwork, an entire live concert shot and directed by Greg Benedetto from a May 2007 show in Toronto, oodles of behind-the-scenes tour footage, webisodes that the band has shot over the last two years, and five music videos, including a previously unreleased video for “The Song I Swore To Never Sing”, shot and directed by vocalist/guitarist Kenny Bridges.
Bridges, along with guitarist Chris “Hippy” Hughes, and bassist Erik Hughes recently parted ways with drummer Peter Krpan, who had been with the band since they formed in 1999. The band is currently writing new material with drummer Steve Nunnaro and expects to enter the studio in early summer to begin recording their fourth full-length album. Meanwhile, the band has already begun posting videos of their progress on their newly revamped website: www.moneen.com
