Known for their high energy live performances, SBC played a unique blend of Hardcore and Metal. Opening for bands such as Bad Brains, Clutch, and Helmet, the band garnered a huge following especially in their native New England. Retiring in 2000, SBC's cult following continued long after they left the stage and made fans out of notable Metal bands such as Lamb Of God, Shadows Fall, Unearth, and Killswitch Engage. Leave Behind A Groove In The Earth tells the story of a band through their triumphs and struggles while showing that some music simply cannot be forgotten.

This Kickstarter campaign is designed to raise funds for finishing and releasing the film.  All money will go into sound and video production, manufacturing,  as well as any legal and licensing costs.

Thank you for your help!

Risks and challenges

Upon being successfully funded we will face some risks and challenges such as:
-Completing any and all editing for a final master of the film, which includes all audio and video.
-Licensing certain audio and video for use in the film, which includes master and synch licenses for some "big name" acts.
-Licensing and legal fees pertaining to any and all logos in the film. Yep, every band t-shirt needs to be cleared.
-Manufacturing DVDs
