With the announcement that their eighth studio album would be named after their HBO documentary, the Foo Fighters have unveiled the first teaser for Sonic Highways, the almost a year in the making documentary.
In the video, frontman Dave Grohl’s voice over explains to the viewer where the idea of this journey began and it all had to do with the idea that the environment that you record in will directly affect the recording process. In order to prove his point, Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters, packed their bags and headed all over the country to test this theory out.
Check out the three and a half-minute clip (believe us, you’ll watch it several times) below and jot down all the famous people who made cameos in it.
Like the voice over at the end of the trailer, this documentary is “a love letter to the history of American music” and we can believe it when you have some of music’s biggest and iconic artists making cameos and speaking to you about what kind of music helped influence them.
Sonic Highways, the documentary, will premiere on October 17 at 10 p.m CT on HBO while Sonic Highways, the album is set to hit shelves on November 10.
Now, raise your hand if you got chills watching the trailer and can’t wait for the series to premiere.
