We now know what that new HBO show with Dave Grohl will be about. The series will document the recording of Foo Fighters’ new album, showing the band laying down tracks in Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, D.C, and New York. In each city, the band will hit a legendary studio and jam with local legends, whom Grohl will also interview. Featured musicians include Minor Threat’s/Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye, Kiss’s Paul Stanley, Heart’s Nancy Wilson, the Eagles’ Joe Walsh, and Buddy Guy.
According to a press release, work on the Foos’ new album included a different songwriting process for Grohl. “Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.”
The as-yet-untitled album is due out this fall from Roswell/RCA, while the series does not yet have a premiere date.
