Rancid's Tim Armstrong Launching Online Show
The debut episode will premier exclusively on VEVO, the world's leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform, on October 21, 2011 with a trailer airing beginning on October 4, 2011.
"I'll play music til the day I die, and this takes everything in an exciting new direction," Armstrong adds. "I love collaborating with other artists and all I want to do is continue to make these episodes. That's the spirit of the project."
The pilot episode of Tim Timebomb's RockNRoll Theater entitled "Dante," will bring the 14th Century epic poem, Dante's Inferno, roaring into the 21th Century with a new take on greed and corporate corruption. The episode stars AFI frontman Davey Havok, guitarist and vocalist Lars Frederiksen of Rancid, and actor Robert David Hall known for his extensive work on CSI.
"Doing a show centered on musical theatre isn't really a stretch for me," says Armstrong. "For 25 years I've been making music and collaborating with friends, been involved in hundreds of videos, and it's really just a direct extension of my world." Armstrong adds, "VEVO is the perfect partner to premiere the show because their platform is extensive and will bring lots of eyeballs to our show."
