The series, which was announced several months ago, will document the band as they travel around the country, recording a song in several cities known for their musical communities.The band traveled to a total of 8 cities – Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, DC and New York – and recorded at renowned studios in each location. Guests also joined them in the various studios, including Gary Clark Jr., Joe Walsh, and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen.The first episode of the series will also feature the debut of a new song from the band’s 8th studio album, which, according to producer Butch Vig, has been completed. Vig tweeted the following last week: Dave Grohl, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, commented about the process of recording this album, and the evolution of Foo Fighters: “The music is a progression or an evolution for sure, but it’s a Foo Fighters record… Honestly, there are sections of songs that will really take you by surprise. And then there are choruses that you’ll just recognize as Foo Fighters within the first three seconds.”No word on an official release date on the new studio album, but we imagine it will be released near the premiere of the series. We’ll be sure to update once we know more!-David Melamed (@DMelamz)last_img
