Along with all the blockbuster action movies hitting theaters this summer, make sure to keep an eye out for the underdog indie movies hitting select theaters and VOD that really need your support. One of those movies is called Band Aid, and the first trailer has just arrived online.

But instead of the usual therapy route, they decide to tackle their problems by forming a band and writing songs about what frustrates them about each other.
