Foo Fighters to get HBO Series/Documentary
 
Uh, yes please.

A new Foo Fighters album is due out this fall and with the as-yet-untitled effort, HBO will air a new series chronicling the "eight-city odyssey during which the record was created."

The band officially announced their plans on Thursday, May 15, revealing that Foos frontman Dave Grohl directed the series which will visit studios in eight cities: Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, DC and New York.

The band recorded one song at each stop with local legends sitting in (for example, members of Cheap Trick are said to be featured during the Chicago portion, according to a source) while the lyrics were written "in an unprecedented experimental style," reads a statement detailing the project. "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 series, which Worldwide Pants is executive producing, comes on the heels of Grohl's directorial debut, the 2013 Grammy-winning doc "Sound City," which told the story of the Van Nuys, Calif. studio where Nirvana recorded the seminal album "Nevermind" and featured interviews with such iconic artists as Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, Neil Young and Trent Reznor, among others. Similarly, the HBO series will, in Grohl's words, present "a love letter to the history of American music" with each episode exploring the cultural impact of these artists' hometowns.

The HBO series is produced in conjunction with James A. Rota, John Ramsay and Therapy studios, and written by Mark Monroe and Grohl for Roswell Films, a division of the Roswell Records label that releases Foo Fighters' music.

An official release date for the Foos' forthcoming eighth album has yet to be announced.

I was never a fan of FF until the last few years. Dave Grohl is a cool MF

They already have a great documentary called "Back and Forth". If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. Great movie.

So much this. It's great.

I, much like Dayze, only recently got into FF. I ****ing love them now. Wasting Light is an incredible album, on top of their other magnificent productions. Skin and Bones is hands down my favorite acoustic set.

The Sound City doc was pretty interesting.
This actually sounds a little gimmicky with the 8 songs in eight cities, but I'll surely check it out.

The Wembley show was amazing. I caught it one night on Paladia. Crowd was huge and just electric. You could tell the band was a little taken aback. (In a good way)
