Shot guerilla style in High Definition color and black and white, the multi-camera crew captures the excitement and commotion of the live performances as well as interactions between the band, fans and locals.

"The tour in Europe, and the film that has resulted, I TRUST YOU TO KILL ME, was an amazingly personal experience," says Sutherland. "I am thrilled that VH1 has responded to the film so positively. I feel it is the perfect home for this documentary and their audience will relate to the journey this film depicts."

Rocco Deluca and The Burden has been chosen by VH1 as the channel′s new "You Oughta Know" artist.

Ironworks Music is an independent record label started by renowned singer-songwriter, producer and manager, Jude Cole and lauded actor and 20-year veteran of the entertainment business, Kiefer Sutherland. The long-time friends originally opened Ironworks in 2004 with the sole intention of creating an artist-driven recording space (which also houses Sutherland′s massive museum-worthy collection of guitars). "We would invite musicians that we liked down to start recording and get creative and it′s actually something that just organically turned into a label," recalls Cole. Today, Ironworks is many things -- recording studio, production company, record label and community. "We′re doing things that we love...trying to incorporate that lust for music to make inspired pieces of work, and just hope that over time Ironworks develops a name that represents that inspired work."

I TRUST YOU TO KILL ME is a Manu Boyer film and produced by Pliny Porter and Matthew R. Brady for First Independent Pictures.
