The Foo Fighters' forthcoming eighth album, which is set to drop this fall, will be accompanied by an HBO docu-series that chronicles its production.
The band's founder Dave Grohl directed the project, which follows the band jetting between Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington D.C. and New York. The Foo Fighters recorded one song in each of the eight cities, recruiting local legends to sit in on every track. In an experimental writing practice, Grohl held off on writing the words to each song until the last day of each recording session in order to be more inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.
"Dave's heartfelt passion for this project is contagious, and his talent as a musician and filmmaker is undeniable," says HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. "We are excited to go on this journey with him and Foo Fighters for this insider's look at how regional music inspired them to create their own new music."
The series will premiere on the eve of Foo Fighters' 20th anniversary. Will you watch?
