FOO FIGHTERS POST EXTENDED TRAILER FOR 'SONIC HIGHWAYS'

Foo Fighters have released an extended, three-and-a-half minute trailer for Sonic Highways, the upcoming eight-part HBO documentary that chronicles the making of the band's new album of the same name. The trailer not only offers up quick excerpts of new Foo Fighters music, but reveals many of the personalities that frontman and director Dave Grohl interviewed for the series, including Slash, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, LL Cool J, Bonnie Raitt, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Pharrell Williams, Joan Jett, Cheap Trick‘s Rick Nielsen, Paul Stanley of Kiss, Joe Walsh, ZZ Top‘s Billy F. Gibbons, Macklemore, Buddy Guy and even President Barack Obama.

The recording of the 44-minute disc took place in iconic studios in eight different cities around the United States, with the Foos also collaborating with and interviewing local artists in each region. The eight-episode HBO series will follow the band to a different location each week.

Dave Grohl says in the trailer, "I really believe the environment in which you write or record an album influences the musical result."

At another point in the trailer, Grohl remarks, "This is a musical map of America. It’s a chronicling of our journey to unravel our musical identity."

The series premieres on October 17th, while the album will arrive on November 10th.
