VH1 Rock Doc 'I Trust You To Kill Me' Featuring Kiefer Sutherland and Rocco Deluca & The Burden to Premiere On VH1 Saturday, November 11 at 9pm
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 24 -- "I Trust You To Kill Me," from
First Independent Pictures and Jude Cole and Kiefer Sutherland's Ironworks
Music label, is headed to VH1 on Saturday, November 11 at 9PM.
The critically acclaimed film, which marks Sutherland's first
appearance in a feature documentary, was released in selected theaters in
New York (9/8), Los Angeles (9/15) and San Francisco (9/29) and features
the first artist signed to Ironworks Music, Rocco DeLuca and The Burden
"I Trust You To Kill Me" follows Kiefer Sutherland taking his indie
record label act, Rocco DeLuca & the Burden, on their first international
tour through London, Dublin, Reykjavik and Berlin. Directed by Manu Boyer,
the rockumentary chronicles a highly personal journey of a rock band &
their less than qualified road manager (Sutherland), and shows the hopes,
successes and disappointments of a band trying to find their audience. Shot
guerilla style in High Definition color and black and white, the
multi-camera crew captures the excitement and commotion of the live
performances as well as interactions between the band, fans and locals.
"The tour in Europe, and the film that has resulted, "I Trust You To
Kill Me," was an amazingly personal experience," says Sutherland. "I am
thrilled that VH1 has responded to the film so positively. I feel it is the
perfect home for this documentary and their audience will relate to the
journey this film depicts."
Rocco DeLuca and The Burden released their debut album, "I Trust You To
Kill Me" this year and their current single, "Colorful" has just entered
the AAA Top 30 chart and is aimed to be a top 10 record.
Rocco Deluca and The Burden has been chosen by VH1 as the channel's new
"You Oughta Know" artist. The "You Oughta Know" campaign will be focused
around the band's first single, "Colorful" and their LIVE@VH1.COM
performance premiered on VSPOT , VH1's broadband channel, on October 2 and
included the songs "Colorful," "Bus Ride," "Gift" and "Swing Low."
Ironworks Music is an independent record label started by renowned
singer-songwriter, producer and manager, Jude Cole and lauded actor and
20-year veteran of the entertainment business, Kiefer Sutherland. The
long-time friends originally opened Ironworks in 2004 with the sole
intention of creating an artist-driven recording space (which also houses
Sutherland's massive museum-worthy collection of guitars). "We would invite
musicians that we liked down to start recording and get creative and it's
actually something that just organically turned into a label," recalls
Cole. Today, Ironworks is many things -- recording studio, production
company, record label and community. "We're doing things that we love ...
trying to incorporate that lust for music to make inspired pieces of work,
and just hope that over time Ironworks develops a name that represents that
"I Trust You To Kill Me" is a Manu Boyer film and produced by Pliny
Porter and Matthew R. Brady for First Independent Pictures.
