Silver Jews hit the road, releasing documentary

    The formerly road shy David Berman and his Silver Jews have proved that the bout of touring undertaken to support their last record, Tanglewood Numbers, wasn’t a unique event. The release of Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea will be promoted by another tour from the band, which will coincide with the DVD release of a documentary about the band titled Silver Jew.

    The movie follows Berman and the group as they arrive in Israel for a few dates to support the release of Tanglewood Numbers. Director Michael Tully told NME: “We simply hoped to capture the band’s experience in Israel as intimately and honestly as possible. I figured that if we did that, we would have something worthwhile on our hands.”
