Father Calling

(Press Release) Alex Band, son of cult horror film director Charles Band and lead singer of the multi-platinum recording act The Calling, will be joining his father on select dates of Charles Band's Full Moon Horror Road Show this October.

Having grown up in the imaginative world of his father, Alex pursued a successful career in entertainment as a musician with his band The Calling. He has even written a song for Charlie's feature release Doll Graveyard (in stores October 4). Alex is joining Charlie in Austin on October 5, Houston on October 6, and in Dallas on October 8.

Alex said, "I grew up idolizing my Dad and his determination and passion to make a dream into reality. With his support and love, I've followed in his footsteps and have done the same. Now with this insane Road Show, we have the perfect opportunity to team up and create something amazing together. I assure you it's gonna rock!"

Band is the visionary behind such classics as Puppetmaster, Trancers, Blood Dolls, Decadent Evil, and the Subspecies vampire series, Band helped launch the careers of many of Hollywood's A-list including Demi Moore, Viggo Mortenson, Helen Hunt, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kelly Preston and many more.

Charles Band began making films in 1975 at the tender age of 21. A pioneer in the entertainment industry, in 1978 he had the foresight to see the potential of the home video market as founder of Media Home Entertainment, the first independent video distribution company in North America. In 1990 he founded his own production studio, Full Moon Features "a final resting place for his twisted imagination."

With a catalog that boasts almost 250 titles, Band has created the ultimate science fiction/horror/fantasy empire that enjoys the envious position of instant label recognition.
