Film released their debut CD 'Filmland' in Jan. '99. The CD was immediately featured on https://www.tradebit.com as one of the weeks top releases alongside The Barenaked Ladies and Ani DiFranco. The band toured in support of the release and played Atlanta's huge 3 day Music Midtown Festival in May with Hole, Kent, Kid Rock, as well as shows from Florida to New York.
MTV licensed all ten tracks from the disc and used two for it's "Road Rules' show season premier episode last June. The band released two new songs in August '99 one of which 'Be with me now' was https://www.tradebit.com's featured pop/rock song of the week and was downloaded over 1500 times in four days.
The band went back in to the studio Jan '00 and recorded 'Lead Machine'. The band opened for Fuel, during Atlanta's Super Bowl Festivities. The track 'Be with me now' was included on a compilation CD sent out with the June issue of Spin Magazine. The band played Music Midtown for an unprecedented 2nd year in a row. This year's headliners included Oasis, Travis, Collective Soul and Creed.
The band were involved in two competitions in June - VH1 chose Film as one of the top ten unsigned bands in the country and Film competed for a slot to play live on VH1. The band finished 5th in https://www.tradebit.com's $250,000 recording deal giveaway. The band consistently draws 300+ to venues in Atlanta.
Film will appear in their first feature film called 'Losing Grace', to be released in 2001. Footage of the band performing 'Lead Machine' and the trailer featuring their song 'Be with me now' can be seen at https://www.tradebit.com The band contributed 5 songs to the score.
Mars Music Records recently chose Film as one of the top 16 unsigned bands in the US.

Film has just finished their sophomore release, 'Rolling' released February 2001. Working with Wiley Music, the band will started a 3 month South East US radio campaign with the single 'Coming Down [can you feel it?] a song described by Brian Long of MCA records as a "very impressive song".

The brand new single 'Q' produced by Universal recording artist Rick Beato (of Billionaire) is available online now. Leslie Fram, program director of WNNX radio 99x in Atlanta, calls 'Q' Film's "career building song".
* * UPDATE * * August 2003
Film were offered a record deal by Maverick records, the band showcased at the legendary Viper Room in LA, then met with Maverick VP Guy OCeary. He offered the band a deal and they flew back to Atlanta to negotiate. The next day, lead singer Michael Lee quit the band, told Maverick he wrote all the songs on his own and took Film's deal.
He hooked up with former Stroke9 Manager Tim OBrien and spent a couple of years getting a new band together called The Rising. He re-recorded 2 Film songs (from 'rolling') Q and Coming Down. To try and avoid paying Film royalties for the use of their songs, he changed the name of Q to So Alive. You can get the full story from https://www.tradebit.com
Film have just finished recording new songs which are up on their official site https://www.tradebit.com
Please help us out by buying our CD, and not buying The Rising cd 'Future Unknown'. The only 2 good songs on that CD are Film's songs anyway. We are trying to raise enough money to fight The Rising and Maverick Records in court, but its a classic "little band vs major label" story.
Thanks for checking us out!!
