New Saint Etienne DVD!

In other Saint Etienne news, their LONG awaited Finisterrefilm finally comes out on DVD on Monday (4 July).

This film, in an embryonic state, was trotted around during the tour for their Finisterre album back in 2002 as back drop films for the new songs. Clips were also used as videos for the album's singles.

The hour long film was then completed after the tour and shown in various cinematic venues like London's ICA.

Like vapourware, the promise of the release of the film has been in the air ever since, so three years on, it's finally coming out.

A bit hurrah all around!

In other other news, there's a new film in the works that the band is debuting at the Barbican in October. I've tentatively pencilled in a 2008 DVD release date for that.
