BROCKHAMPTON is going for gold in 2018. Back in March, the musical posse signed a $15 million record deal with RCA, released a slew of singles and merchandise, performed at Reading Festival, recorded an album, and somehow found time to film footage for the newly announced documentary, The Longest Summer in America.
The trailer (which you can watch above) shines a light on the group’s intense summer, detailing the highs of inking a major label deal and recording their album Iridescence, at London’s Abbey Road Studios to the lows of the group’s career. Namely, Ameer Vann’s exit from the group amidst sexual abuse allegations put against him.
The film will premiere at Los Angeles’ Arclight Sunset Theater on September 17th. Additional $1 screenings across the US and UK will follow.
On September 21, the group will embark on their forthcoming ‘I’ll Be There’ tour in Australia and New Zealand before heading back to North America for the final dates.
