'Working Class Rock Star' Screenings Confirmed
October 7, 2008
'Working Class Rock Star', directed by Justin McConnell, is a documentary focusing on the Music Industry through the eyes of the artists. McConnell has stated that the inspiration for the film came from his work with Dog Fashion Disco. While creating two DVDs for the Maryland band - 'DFDVD' and 'The City Is Alive Tonight...Live in Baltimore' - he started to form the basis for what is now the film.

The synopsis for the film is as follows: "The music industry is changing, record sales are down, artists are making less money, and mediocrity holds sway. Yet there are more bands than ever before working for years just to receive even the tiniest drop of success. Following the lives and careers of Tub Ring, Bloodshoteye, and 3 Mile Scream, with supporting interviews from major players in the heavy music scene, this documentary sheds light on why some bands never make it and why the ones that break realize only too soon that life on a label is only the beginning of their troubles.

The film was shot between June 2005 - June 2007, capturing a two year period in the careers of each of the 3 main bands. The creation of the film was taken on in the spirit of a band trying to make and sell an album at this level of the industry.

The film will be playing in select cities leading up to it’s November 11th DVD release. The official website www.workingclassrockstar.com will announce them as they become official, but two screening dates are now locked in:

October 8 – Portland, Oregon – Clinton Street Theater (7pm & 9pm)
November 14 – 16 – Joensuu, Finland – Rokumentti Film Festival

Norm Geneau: Drums

In a time where bands boasting about blending melody to brutality are a dime a dozen, few step up to the plate as imposing as Montreals 3 Mile Scream. While combining near lethal doses of Slayer like thrash metal to the crushing brutality of death metal, the band strives to maintain between beauty and aggression throughout their debut album "A Prelude to Our Demise".

We bring in a variety of influences to our sound, we try to mix a good blend of melody and brutality in both the vocals and the music. We kinda have something for every metal fan, whether they like all out ripping thrash, intricate melodies and harmonies, or pure death metal, says frontman Matt McGachy.

Enlisting the aid of acclaimed producer J-F Dagenais (Malevolent Creation, Kataklysm, Misery Index) and engineer UE Nastasi (Killswitch Engage, Strapping Young Lad, Candiria, ), 3 Mile Scream laid down their punishing Corporate Punishment debut. A stunning blend of European influenced metal; old-school thrash and classic death metal make "A Prelude to Our Demise" album a true testament to 3 Mile Screams ever evolving sound.

Its kind of weird because you have all these bands that are coming out nowadays saying they were influenced by At The Gates and In Flames because its the in thing to like them, but who were those same bands listening to 5 or 6 years ago when it wasnt cool to like metal?, says 3 Mile Scream bassist Mike Marino. Weve always been big into the European metal scene and that had a huge impact on our sound, along with the old Bay Area Thrash scene and groups like Testament and Exodus.

Formed in early 2003, 3 Mile Scream was created out of the ashes of various metal groups throughout the Montreal scene. Embracing a no sleep, no need work ethic, the band went on to play countless gigs opening up for mainstream heavyweights like  Unearth, Soulfly, Cryptopsy, God Forbid, Strapping Young Lad, Cannae, Bury Your Dead and A Perfect Murder. 3 Mile Screams explosive live show, a maelstrom of intense unrelenting metal, quickly helped the band win a cult like following throughout the metal and hardcore scene all without any help from management or a record label.

Weve always made this band our number one priority and everyone in the band has to give us 110% dedication. Weve all endured hardships to make this work, says Marino.

Around this time, the band's buzz caught the ear of Thom Hazaert, who signed the band to up-and-coming indie powerhouse Corporate Punishment Records. With a November 21st, 2006 release date set for "A Prelude to Our Demise", 3 Mile Scream are determined to unleash their brand of metal with a vengeance. Never compromising their drive to succeed and a dedication to unleash some of the most punishing metal, this band is dead-set on proving time and time again that they are not one to be overlooked.
Artfully orchestrated brutality D. Randall Blythe, Lamb of God

3 Mile Scream are a hard working band. These guys are sure to succeed Trevor Phipps, Unearth

3 Mile Scream are making the future of Metal as we speak. Stand up and LISTEN!!! John Outcalt, God Forbid

Heavy and Melodic, great chops Michael Amott, Arch Enemy

These guys will definitely make some noise. Jean-Francois Dagenais, Kataklysm

Not since STRAPPING YOUNG LAD has Canada had a band put the M in Metal like 3 Mile Scream. Their live show is unparalleled OJ, Byzantine
