Every year since they were teenagers, the Dead MaKabés engage in what they pompously call a “summer tour” - a few concerts in the most unlikely European festivals.

Gather round Metalheads! POP REDEMPTION (feature film directed by Martin Le Gall) was mentioned on this week’s “Top 5” program on Arte YouTube channel: Blow Up. The episode was focused on Metal and Cinema. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZkENqRku1k
The news was revealed today in the french paper LE PARISIEN. But it was a fiercely kept secret for the POP REDEMPTION crew, which is now leaving Clisson gothic grounds for the more joyous colours of Aquitain, where the shooting is to be continued.
Directing the hell show is young filmmaker Martin Le Gall (JOGGING CATEGORY). Avalon, 22h22 and Gaumont produce together.
Casting is now over for our musical production POP REDEMPTION.
Julien Doré will be Alex, the charismatic leader of the Dead Makabees. The other musicians will be played by Grégory Gadebois, Yacine, and Jonathan Cohen.
Still to be found : the actress to play the part of Martine.
