Foo Fighters announce HBO documentary about new album

2014-05-16 13:55
Los Angeles - The Foo Fighters will star in a documentary following the making of their new album.

The five-piece band have announced an eight-part TV series airing on HBO and directed by the band's frontman Dave Grohl.

Each episode will follow the rockers' journey to a different US city - Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington DC and New York - where they'll visit legendary studios to record tracks for their eighth album.

The documentary will act as a follow up to Dave's award-winning directorial debut Sound City which followed the history of the recording studio Sound City Studios in Los Angeles, California and opened to commercial and critical acclaim in January last year.

Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, said: "Dave's heartfelt passion for this project is contagious and his talent as a musician and filmmaker is undeniable. We are excited to go on this journey with him and the Foo Fighters for this insider's look at how regional music inspired them to create their own new music."

The album - which is yet to be named - has been described by Dave as "a love letter to the history of American music" - and features vocals from local musical guests from each of the eight cities.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe about their latest offering, he previously said: "I know what it sounds like and I honestly think the entire concept is really going to take people by surprise and it sounds nuts."
