The Go-Go’s are getting a documentary. The pioneering California new wave band emerged out of the LA punk scene of the late ’70s and are still the only all-female band that wrote their own material and played their own instruments to hit #1 on the Billboard albums chart. Their story is being told in the new movie The Go-Go’s, directed by Alison Ellwood (History Of The Eagles/American Jihad) and premiering on Showtime next month after screening at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
To celebrate the release of the doc, the Go-Go’s are also releasing their first new song in 19 years. “Club Zero” will be out 7/31 via UMe, and the film shows the band working on an early version of the track. Watch the new trailer, which features archival footage and interviews with Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock, Kathy Valentine, and Jane Wiedlin, below.
The Go-Go’s premieres 8/1 on Showtime.
