Published Nov 07, 2016Punk rock doc A Fat Wreck: The Punk-u-mentary had its official premiere at the Dallas International Film Festival back in April this year, but for those who are looking to explore the history of Fat Wreck Chords from the couch, the film will be treated to a home release later this month.
A Fat Wreck will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and through digital retailers on November 22 via the Orchard and Something Kreative. The film was directed by Shaun M. Colón following an extremely successful Indiegogo campaign and was written by frequent Exclaim! contributor Greg Pratt.
Physical pre-order packages for the film that include some film shirts are now available here, while digital pre-orders are available through iTunes. More information can be found by visiting the film's official website.
As previously reported, A Fat Wreck tells the story of long-running punk label Fat Wreck Chords through puppet reenactments and talking head interviews with label founders (and former married couple) Fat Mike and Erin Burkett, along with Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace and members of Lagwagon, Good Riddance, No Use for a Name, Propagandhi and others.
