Vision of Disorder, the Long Island-based hardcore band that merged traditional east coast hardcore alongside thrash metal before disbanding in 2002, is set to release â€œDead In New York,â€ a posthumous DVD showcasing the bandâ€™s frenetic live shows as well as backstage footage. The band, which only recently reunited for a handful of shows, will play a hometown show at Irving Plaza on Nov. 16 to commemorate the release of the DVD.
â€œThe one thing we always knew when playing hundreds of shows around the world was that our live experience was always a special bond between the band and our fans. It always seemed like a big community at V.O.D. shows,â€ explains Matthew Baumbach. â€œWhatâ€™s amazing about â€˜Dead in New Yorkâ€™ is that we were able to capture that exact aspect. It shows everything from the mayhem of the material with people getting knocked out during the crazy breakdowns along with insane crowd sing-a-longs.â€
Filmed by Bill Yukich, the DVD includes shows from Long Island and Worcester, Mass. in 2006. Yukich was granted full access to the band, both on stage and off stage, capturing behind the scenes moments that encapsulate a historic part of the hardcore scene. V.O.D. dug deep into their personal archives to provide rarely seen and sometimes never-before-seen footage dating back to 1994.
