NEW YORK (June 9, 2014) – Vimeo unveiled today a diverse slate of music titles coming exclusively to Vimeo On Demand this month. The exciting lineup includes On My Way Home, a concert documentary from Grammy Award winning a cappella group Pentatonix and Every Other Summer, a film about Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival. Documentaries Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving The Policeand Soaked in Bleach, round out the slate giving a glimpse into the rock n’ roll lives of The Police, and the controversy surrounding the death of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain.

Soaked in Bleach (June 11 | Now in Pre-order): Soaked In Bleach reveals the events surrounding Kurt Cobain’s death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Cobain) only days before his body was found at their Seattle home. Narrated by Grant (played by Lost’s Daniel Roebuck), the film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic recreations, interviews with key experts and witnesses, and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.

Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police (June 12 |Now in Pre-order): Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police is based on the acclaimed memoir One Train Later by rock guitarist Andy Summers, and follows Summers’ journey from his early days in the psychedelic ’60s music scene, when he played with The Animals, to chance encounters with drummer Stewart Copeland and bassist Sting, which led to the formation of a punk trio, The Police. During the band’s phenomenal rise and its dissolution at the height of their popularity in the mid-80s, Summers captured history with his candid photographs. Utilizing rare archival footage and insights from the guitarist’s side of the stage, Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police brings together past and present as the band members reunite, more than two decades later, for a global reunion tour in 2007.

On My Way Home (June 18 | Now in Pre-order): Grammy Award-winners and platinum selling recording artists Pentatonix are bringing their concert documentary On My Way Home exclusively to Vimeo On Demand.
