Poised to be the next massive Bay Area breakout rock band, Bleeding Audio tells the inspiring story of The Matches through the eyes of bandmates Justin, Shawn, Matt and Jon: four creative and quirky, yet humble musicians who worked their hardest and failed, only to reunite stronger than ever, forcing themselves to redefine their vision of success.
The Matches’ story overlaps with the drastic changes the music industry has undergone in the past several years. From declining record sales, to excessive touring, to illegal downloading and streaming. This documentary will use The Matches history and recent reunion to dig deeper into the root of the challenges the average musician faces in the digital age of the industry, and how artists can navigate their careers today.
Bleeding Audio features interviews from The Matches, their family and friends; including Nick Hexum of 311, Mark Hoppus of Blink 182, Cassadee Pope from The Voice, Biffy Clyro, Plain White T’s, Motion City Soundtrack, Zebrahead, and more!
