"Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall" is a DVD which shows the world what audiences who attended the springtime "Post Pop Depression" concerts knew intimately. Iggy Pop, a dynamic frontman, rightfully called an icon by the Grammy awards-granting body, is backed by talented sidemen who work through material from two eras of rock and roll.
Winner of Best Live Music Coverage by the UK Music Video Awards, "Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall"'s full-scale production runs through 22 songs. Splinter Films captures and celebrates a spectacle, a snapshot in time. With no excess fanfare or lavish post-production, it attempts to simply illustrate music in the making. Fans who witnessed this show in-person have almost unanimously agreed that it was one of their favorites, and this DVD attempts to show the rest of the world 'why'.
The concert runs a sliver shy of two hours, and the camerawork shows the toil the musicians sweat through under diffuse, hot stage lights.

Recorded in secret at the end of 2015, 'Post Pop Depression' will be out on March 18th, with a short tour planned for the same time.
Recorded in secrecy in both of Homme’s studios – one in Joshua Tree and the other in Pink Duck, Los Angeles – with the help of Arctic Monkeys’ drummer Matt Helders and Homme’s QOTSA bandmate Dean Fertita on guitars, Post Pop Depression is set for release on March 18th.
Speaking to the New York Times, Iggy said that the record’s themes were informed by his own advancing age and the idea of usefulness in modern society. “What happens after your years of service? And where is the honour?”
The band will continue their touring run after festival season.
They performed a stellar set at Download Festival over the weekend and now Josh Homme's band Eagles of Death Metal have added more UK tour dates to their 2015 schedule, with a handful of shows in November following yet more top festival appearances.

Homme remains with Dalle, and decided that the best response would be to stay silent in order to disprove the rumours. He explained: "I got all kinds of threats. They were saying, 'We're gonna kill you.' And I was saying, 'I'm six-foot-five and I have red hair and I'm not hiding. Go ahead.' I didn't steal anybody's anything.
