It’s been a bit since a new volume of Burn To Shine was produced or released, but it’s worth highlighting nonetheless. Burn To Shine is a music DVD series created by filmmaker Christoph Green and ex-Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty. For each volume, Christoph and Brendan travel to a city, select a house that’s been slated for demolition, capture the history of the property, bring in bands from the area to perform a one-take song, and then burn it to the ground. Simple concept. Amazing videos.

There have been four volumes released thus far, which can be purchased here. There are others that have been filmed and will hopefully see the light of day. Get a glimpse of the current volumes below.
