In the good old days, most rock home videos (we're talking pre-DVD -- remember that era?) were either solely comprised of a live show or a collection of a group's promo videos. But somewhere along the line, bands got wise to the fact that combining both together -- and adding interviews and behind-the-scenes bits -- made for more interesting viewing. A fine example of this potpourri approach is the first ever DVD release by Underoath, 777 (whose release date comes mighty close to being 7/7/7 -- July 17, 2007). Featuring footage shot during several different tours around the globe, you get close-up looks of the band signing autographs and meeting fans, all the videos from 2006's breakthrough Define the Great Line, a "making of documentary" for the "You're Ever So Inviting" clip, and oh yes, also live footage (including a "Myspace Secret Show"), which confirms that the group is quite an energetic bunch of lads on-stage. If you're a loud and proud admirer of Underoath, then 777 will make for some mighty fine viewing.
