The band will also screen their animated music video W.M.D. (Weapons of Mass Destruction) -- recently featured on MTV -- which tells the story of many of our brave men and women fighting in Iraq.

Founded in 2001, Blow Up Hollywood have built a tremendous following, especially impressive given their anonymous tendencies and strict independence.
