WATCH: This behind-the-scenes documentary on The Blizzards' new album is shockingly star-studded
From Snoop Dogg to Mattress Mick. No, we're not kidding.
It has been over a decade since The Blizzards released their sophomore album Domino Effect, but fans of the band have known that a comeback has been in the works for a while now.
There have been gigs and singles, but the actual elusive third album is still not within our grasp.
However, director Jeff Doyle followed the band and their manager Duncan Browne for the last year, all in the lead-up to the release of the new album, and speaking to JOE, Doyle confirmed that none of the band have seen any of the footage from the behind-the-scenes filming.
Instead, it will be getting a full-on, big-screen release next month, as The Blizzards: Behind The Music will be premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh on Thursday 11 July.
The teaser gives some indication of the level of superstars involved in the project, but Doyle revealed the full castlist for the doc, and it is... quite something:
Louis Walsh, Ryan Tubridy, Amy Huberman, John Connors, Mattress Mick, Shane McGowan, James Kavanagh, The Happy Pear, Tommy Lee, Snopp Dogg, Def Leppard, Wheatus, Ham Sandwich, Brendan O'Carroll, Kodaline, The Coronas, Wild Youth, George McMahon, Picture This, Tebi Rex, Perez Hilton, Gary Cooke, Dermot & Dave, Tony McGregor, John Kavanagh, Podge & Rodge, Laura Whitmore, Eoghan McDermot, and Stormy Daniels.
Check out the trailer for the short documentary right here:
For the last year I've followed @THEBLIZZARDSIX and their manager Duncan Browne around.
The film has just been accepted to the prestigious Galway Film Fleadh.
The band haven't seen any of the footage I've shot or edited.
