Therapy Studios' Foo Fighters Docuseries Premieres on HBO
Episode one of the eight-part docuseries Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways debuted on HBO on October 17 at 11:00 P.M. PST – coinciding with the eve of the band’s 20th anniversary. The highly-anticipated series chronicles the making of the band’s forthcoming eighth album recorded in legendary studios across Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington D.C. and New York.
Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways is directed by front man Dave Grohl for Roswell Films, a division of Roswell Records, the label that releases Foo Fighters' music; and is written by Mark Monroe and Dave Grohl. The series is executive produced by Dave Grohl, James A. Rota and John Ramsay and produced for HBO by Roswell Films and Therapy Content, in association with Worldwide Pants.
Sonic Highways follows the Foo Fighters as they base themselves in historically significant studios in eight American cities to write and record one song at each stop, with Grohl waiting until the last day of each session to put down words so as to be inspired by his surroundings.
Episode one kicks off in Chicago and follows the band as they tap into the spirit of the Midwest music mecca to emerge with their first track "Something From Nothing," featuring cameos and songwriting contributions from local legends including Buddy Guy, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, producer Steve Albini and Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen.
HBO will collaborate with Facebook to present “Foo Fighters Sonic Highways: Live from The Cubby Bear,” the small Chicago club with great personal significance to Grohl, who saw his first punk show there. A live stream of the Foo Fighters' set immediately following the screening will be made available to fans in the U.S. on the HBO Facebook page.
