The band has been keeping busy this year with concerts in the UK, Europe, and Japan. There was also the release of the documentary, "The Public Image is Rotten," which premiered at the Tribeca Flim Festival in New York and the Raindance Festival in London. 

The film looks at the group's history following their ups and downs. Clocking in at 103-minutes, it was made by first time director Tabbert Fiiller and features plenty of live footage of the band. "The Public Image is Rotten" will make its North American theatrical debut on Friday, September 14 at New York City's Metrograph. Additional screenings will occur in October and November.
