Video: LCD Soundsystem, 'Shut Up And Play The Hits' - Trailer

Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys has gained distribution rights to the LCD Soundsystem film, Shut Up And Play The Hits. Watch the trailer for the film above.

Yauch's company Oscilloscope Laboratories, will be releasing the film in North America this summer. According to LCD Soundsystem's Twitter, the movie will be out in the UK later in the year.



The movie documents the last performances of LCD Soundsystem in 2011 at New York's Madison Square Garden venue. Adam Yauch - pictured right - has said of the film: "Perhaps having grown up in a band for most of my life – a band that formed when I was 16 years old – and having released our first record when I was still in high school, this film addresses so many questions. For instance, it can be pretty clear when a band starts, but perhaps less so when it ends, or how it should end. In that sense, it's brilliant of James [Murphy] to end it in such a definitive way."

Shut Up And Play The Hits premiered at the Sundance Film Festival at the start of the year, and was also screened last month at SXSW.
