It’s been a long time coming, but Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury is finally set to be released later this year, and so a new trailer has arrived for the Matt Hinton-directed documentary. Here’s the official synopsis:
Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury follows the path of Luxury, a band who, on the cusp of success suffered a devastating wreck. In the intervening years, they continue to make records and three members of the band become Eastern Orthodox priests. Through interviews and archival footage, Parallel Love tells the gripping and poignant story of Luxury and documents the making of a new record, now as priests.
Luxury was one of those bands that never really got their due, but still kept pumping out solid records even after a traumatic car accident nearly ended their musical career. Their most recent album, Trophies, was recorded in 2015 and will get its official release alongside Parallel Love.
Paste Magazine, which premiered the new trailer, has more info about the film as well as Luxury’s history.
