Coalesce detail DVD, post trailer

Influential hardcore act Coalesce have detailed their upcoming DVD. The four disc set will feature a series of live performances and will include more than six hours of footage over all.

The band also had this to say about the hefty package:

The covers are coming in soon, and the dvd slips have been hand cut and hand embossed by Sean and his Daughters. In short we are pretty excited about this very hand made project. The packaging is a silkscreened digipack that is 1/2″ thick, and all 4 discs, insert, and sticker slide into. Some of the audio on some of the shows is not ideal, but we are talking about footage from 1995. None of the shows are edited, it’s full sets, with chapter marks at each new song. Some of the shows are cut short due to batteries dying or whatever, but we are hard at work at digging up more old footage for future archival.

Even with the four discs, the band is planning to sell the entire set for $25 at upcoming shows and potentially in stores this October.

Coalesce was formed in 1995 and, along with Botch, proved to be one of the most influential bands in 90s noise, metal and hardcore. Drummer James DeWees went on to join The Get Up Kids and performed with New Found Glory as well as forming Reggie and the Full Effect. Sean Ingram has provided vocals on albums for Blessing The Hogs, The Used, the Ocean and Reggie and the Full Effect. Stacy Hilt and Nate Ellis went on to form The Casket Lottery.
