The Foo Fighters have their 8th studio album, Sonic Highway, out to be released Nov. 10 on Roswell Records. For this new album the Foo Fighters are “doing things that we’ve never done before,” front man Dave Grohl told THR “You’ll recognize Foo Fighters in this record but you’ll also be surprised by us.” While the album is only to have eight songs, it is supposed to be one of the longer Foo Fighters albums.
Sonic Highways is also the Foo Fighters’ upcoming HBO television series which will air Friday, Oct. 17 at 11 p.m. ET/PT, with seven other episodes debuting the following weeks. Directed by front man Dave Grohl, Sonic Highways will document the Foo Fighter’s recording their new album, Sonic Highway in famous recording studios in eight different cities – Austin, Chicago, Los Angles, Seattle, Nashville, New Orleans, New York and Washington D.C. In this eight part series, they will be spending a week in each city doing interviews, exploring the musical history, and playing music before recording their session. The newest trailer teases at interviews with Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, the Eagles’ Joe Walsh, Kiss’ Paul Stanley, Pharrell Williams, Slash and President Barak Obama, all discussing America’s rich music history. With Dave Grohl’s experience creating dynamic music documentaries in the film Sound City, there is high expectations for this upcoming series.
