UNDER THE VOLCANO

26 July 2021Visit website

The trailer has been released for the new documentary UNDER THE VOLCANO which tells the story of Sir George Martin’s iconic Air Studios Montserrat & the island that changed music forever. This will be released on digital, DVD and Blu-ray on July 26th, 2021, and will include neve before seen footage and images from Air Studios Montserrat. Directed by Gracie Otto (The Last Impresario) and produced by Cody Greenwood, UNDER THE VOLCANO charts the rise and fall of AIR Studios Montserrat, the recording studio at the centre of the pop universe in the 1980s.

Built by Beatles’ producer Sir George Martin in 1979, AIR Studios Montserrat was a custom-built facility tucked away on a Caribbean paradise. In the shadow of an active volcano, the studio not only attracted the biggest musical talent on the planet but was the birthplace of mega-hits such as Money for Nothing and Every Breath You Take.

For a decade, AIR Montserrat formed the backdrop to monumental events in music history including the break-up of The Police, the reunion of The Rolling Stones, and the reinvigoration of Paul McCartney after the tragic murder of John Lennon. After a decade of hits, and at the peak of its popularity, the studio was destroyed when the island was hit by a series of devastating natural disasters.

Through personal accounts and backed by a blistering soundtrack, UNDER THE VOLCANO is the definitive account of Sir George Martin’s studio at the end of the world. UNDER THE VOLCANO is the electrifying story of musical powerhouse and the secluded hit factory that produced some of the 70s and 80s most iconic records from the world’s most famous artists.
