Foo Fighters Set Premiere Date for Upcoming HBO ‘Sonic Highways’ Series

Get out your calendar, circle Oct. 17 and make sure you’re subscribing to HBO when the date arrives. That’s because Foo Fighters have set the premiere date for their upcoming series, ‘Sonic Highways,’ which follows the creation of their new album. The eight-episode series will air on Fridays at 11PM ET/PT throughout its run.

The band set out with the idea of visiting some of America’s most richest musical scenes, recording songs in each of the cities and recording the whole process for posterity. “I’ve pulled up the family tree of American music and explored its roots to find inspiration for the next Foo Fighters album,” explained Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl in announcing the project.

Along the way, the group met up with some of the artists closely associated with the cities they were visiting. For instance, Cheap Trick guitarist joined the band in Chicago, while Gary Clark Jr. lent some licks during their stop in Austin, Texas. Zac Brown, Joe Walsh and Trombone Shorty and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band were also among the guests during the band’s stops. In addition to Chicago and Austin, the band also made stops in Nashville, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

The Foo Fighters album is still expected to surface in November. Producer Butch Vig recently confirmed that the band had completed recording of their eighth studio disc.
