August Band hits the road in Puan Mai Kao

Formed as a fictional musical group for director Chookiat Sakveerakul's 2007 gay teen romance Love of Siam, the August Band played at a few promotional appearances for the movie and proved so popular it became a real act.

The band, which appeared in an animated Yellow Submarine-like fantasy segment in the shorts anthology Four Romances, now has a whole live-action feature built around them in Puan Mai Kao (เพื่อนไม่เก่า, a.k.a. August Friends).

Singer "Peachy" Witwisit Hirunyawongkul and the rest of the guys hit the road for a bicycling journey from Bangkok to Lampang that will test their friendships.

Kriangkrai Wachirathammaphon, who was a co-writer of Four Romances, directs with Chookiat as co-screenwriter.

Here's the trailer. It pedals into Thai cinemas this week.
