Halo-8 Entertainment has secured North American distribution rights to the legendary documentary "N.Y.H.C." by first-time director Frank Pavich, featuring Madball, Agnostic Front, VOD, Sick Of It All, and many more. Halo-8 has slated the film for a 2-disc DVD release on March 25th, 2008.

Originally released as a now-legendary underground VHS tape in 1999, N.Y.H.C. will come to DVD for the first-time as a deluxe 2-Disc Set. This incarnation features interviews with Jimmy Gestapo (Murphy's Law), John Joseph (Cro-Mags), Lou Koller (Sick of It All), Lord Ezec (Crown of Thornz, Danny Diablo), Roger Miret (Agnostic Front), Rick ta Life (25 ta Life), Toby Morse (H2O), Vic DiCara & Rasaraja das (108), Freddy Madball (Madball), Tim Williams & Mike Kennedy (VOD, Bloodsimple), District 9, No Redeeming Social Value, and more. The brand-new "Disc 2" includes "Where Are They Now?" interviews shot ten years after the original documentary, flashbacks of key venues, and previously unreleased live performances of iconic songs by VOD, 108, Madball, 25 ta Life, Crown of Thornz, and more.

N.Y.H.C. is the first feature-length documentary to explore the New York Harcore music scene. Drawings its roots from punk rock, hardcore evolved into a dedicated, self-contained movement, unconcerned with success in the mainstream. The documentary follows seven bands in the summer of 1995, ranging from Bronx inner-city youth to Long Island suburbanites to Hare Krishna devotees. N.Y.H.C. is a surprisingly in-depth and non-exploitive look into a vital and often neglected music community.
