Failure, who recently announced a North American tour in support of their sixth album, Wild Type Droid, have released an extended trailer for their forthcoming documentary film Failure. The trailer highlights the Los Angeles-band’s influence and the story behind their initial break-up. A 30 minute special preview of the 2023 film will be screening at select upcoming North American dates. Wild Type Droid  arrived in December via the band’s own label, Failure Music. 

Ken Andrews explained of the album:

To me, it captures a lot of the new musical approaches and techniques we were going for on this album, but somehow is still quintessential Failure. We’ve been together long enough to know that some of our best ideas come directly from these experimental sessions. For this album, we simply cultivated that methodology for a much longer time than we have in the past. It brought out the trio aspect of the band. There was a feeling we could really push the individual parts further away from each other and let the more interesting and challenging combinations take center stage.
