Avett Brothers documentary to premiere September 12

-Evan O’Brien, Roots N Blues Intern

It might not be an album, but fans of the folk group The Avett Brothers have something to cheer about. The band is the focal point of an upcoming documentary from directors Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio titled “May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers.”

Apatow, the man responsible of films like “The 40 year-Old Virgin”, “Knocked Up” and many others joins forces with Bonfiglio who has produced shorts and documentaries partnered with the likes of Metallica, Ed Sheeran, and also previously with The Avett Brothers on the short “Morning Song.”

The film follows the success the group saw after the release of their 9th studio album, “True Sadness.” The album received two Grammy nominations: one for Best Americana Album and the other for Best American Roots Performance. This upcoming film about the two-time Roots N Blues performers premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin this past March.

May It Last will be played in theaters for one night only — September 12 — and will be shown in over 250 theatres nationwide. You can get excited for the release by watching the trailer here.
