HBO Logo


As the 11-time Grammy-winning, 25-million-plus-selling Foo Fighters ready their eighth album for November release, Dave Grohl, the band’s frontman — and accomplished director of the acclaimed feature-film documentary “Sound City” – delivers FOO FIGHTERS: SONIC HIGHWAYS, an unprecedented eight-part documentary series that digs deep into the heart and soul of America’s musical identity.

Directed by Grohl, each one-hour episode is devoted to a different American musical landmark, chronicling the history, cultural environment and people that define each city’s unique musical identity. With episodes set in (in alphabetical order) Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C., FOO FIGHTERS: SONIC HIGHWAYS features appearances from local legends who have become the musical and cultural ambassadors of those cities, including Buddy Guy, Joe Walsh, Dolly Parton, Rick Nielsen, Bad Brains, Chuck D, Gibby Haynes, Allen Toussaint and Gary Clark, Jr., among others. Described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music, the HBO series debuts in October.  FOO FIGHTERS: SONIC HIGHWAYS will debut FRIDAY, OCT. 17 (11:00 p.m.-midnight ET/PT), followed by other episodes debuting subsequent Fridays at the same time.
