Rock documentary We Are X on DVD and Blu-ray Steelbook in May

11 April 2017

Manga Entertainment have announced the May release of the first documentary in the Mondo x SteelBook line: We Are X featuring the artwork of Becky Cloonan.

From the production team behind the Oscar winning Searching For Sugar Man comes We Are X, a transcendent rock & roll story about X Japan, the world’s biggest and most successful band you’ve never heard of... yet.

Under the enigmatic direction of drummer, pianist, composer, and producer Yoshiki, X Japan has sold over 30 million singles and albums combined – captivating such a wide range of admirers as Sir George Martin, KISS, Stan Lee, and even the Japanese Emperor – and pioneered a spectacle driven style of visual rock, creating a one of a kind cultural phenomenon.

Chronicling the band’s exhilarating, tumultuous and unimaginable history over the past three decades – persevering through personal, physical and spiritual heartache – the film culminates with preparations for their breathtaking reunion concert at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man), We Are X is an astonishingly intimate portrait of a deeply haunted but unstoppable virtuoso and the music that has enthralled legions of the world’s most devoted fans.

We Are X Steelbook

We Are X comes to UK DVD and Mondo x Steelbook Blu-ray on 22 May by Manga Entertainment at the RRP of £19.99 for the DVD and £39.99 for the Blu-ray Steelbook.
