French pop band Phoenix to premiere documentary

French band Phoenix

Grammy-winning French indie pop act Phoenix is set to premiere a documentary chronicling the band's rise to fame on October 13.

According to music site TwentyFourBit, the new 52-minute film, From a Mess to the Masses, captures the chaos around the band's breakthrough 2009 album, and their subsequent rise to fame.

In 2009 the Versailles band released their fourth studio album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which went gold in the US, Canada, and Australia and earned a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album.

Directed by Sorriano Franciso and Antoine Wagner, who also helmed the band's "Lisztomania" video, the film compiles behind-the-scenes and live concert footage gathered by Wagner, who accompanied the band for an entire year.

From a Mess to the Masses will reportedly premiere in France and Germany on October 13 on the Arte television network. Expanded release dates have yet to be announced.
