NEW YORK (Billboard) - Punk veterans the Sex Pistols will release their live DVD "There'll Always Be An England" on October 14 in the United States.

The Rhino Records release features the original lineup of Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock performing at November 2007 reunion shows at London's Brixton Academy.

"This film is about the unique electricity between the Sex Pistols and their audience," director Julien Temple said in a statement. "The amazing cross section of the crowd at a Pistols gig is like no other, and the Brixton shows last year brought the band to a whole new generation as well as to those that have been there from the very beginning."

In addition to the concert, the DVD package includes more than an hour-and-a-half of bonus footage, such as a feature, "The Knowledge," showing each band member revisiting his old London hunting grounds.

Also on October 14, Rhino will release the band's landmark 1977 debut, "Never Mind the Bollocks ... Here's the Sex Pistols," on 180-gram vinyl.

"Buy one get one for the same price as one," the ever-enigmatic Lydon said on his Web site.
