In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, they decide to turn all of their fights into songs, and with the help of their neighbor, Dave, they start a band.

BAND AID had its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2017. Shortly after, IFC Films and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions acquired U.S and international distribution rights, respectively. It had its Los Angeles Premiere on May 30, 2017 and was released in theaters on June 2, 2017.

Band Aid received positive reviews from film critics. It holds an 85% approval rating on review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 54 reviews, with a weighted average of 6.9/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Band Aid tells a solidly affecting story of a relationship on the rocks -- and marks star Zoe Lister-Jones, who also wrote and directed, as a tremendous triple threat worth watching." On Metacritic, the film holds a rating of 67 out of 100, based on 21 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".

Andrew Barker of Variety gave the film a positive review, writing: "It lives and dies on Lister-Jones and Pally's chemistry, which the film is just as willing to test as to nurture." Sheri Lindin of The Hollywood Reporter also gave the film a positive review, writing: "An exuberantly low-key charmer that uses a light, wry touch to tackle such weighty matters as artistic drive and inertia and the male–female divide, while offering new fuel for drummer jokes." David Ehrlich of Indiewire also gave the film a positive review, writing: "The sweet and sincere Band Aid makes a convincing case that relationships are all about how you heal from them."

BAND AID was available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes on August 29, 2017 and was released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 5, 2017.
