French rock act Phoenix will return with a documentary on its breakthrough year, according to TwentyFourBit.

The band's 2009 release "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" was a key release for the quartet, going gold in the U.S. and earning a Grammy for Best Alternative Album. "From a Mess to the Masses," a 52-minute film, will chronicle the group's rise with live and behind-the-scenes footage. The film was directed by Antoine Wagner, who also helmed Phoenix's "Lisztomania" video.

The film will reportedly premiere in France and Germany on Oct. 13 on the Arte television network, with a potential U.S. release date yet to be announced.

In the meantime, watch the film's trailer below:
