Led Zeppelin have announced the imminent release of a new documentary celebrating the band on their 50th anniversary. 

The still-untitled film, directed by Bernard MacMahon (who also helmed the 2017 documentary American Epic, about the first recordings of rural music in the U.S.), “traces the journeys of the four members through the music scene of the Sixties, their meeting in the summer of 1968 for a rehearsal that will change the future of rock, and culminates in 1970 when their second album knocks the Beatles off the top of the charts and they become the number one band in the world.”
