Foo Fighters have officially announced October 17 as the premiere date of Dave Grohl-directed HBO documentary series "Sonic Highways," also confirming that the first single off their new album will be presented on the same day.
The show's finale is set to take place on December 5, rounding up the group's new-album journey that took them through eight US cities, recording one song in each of them with the help of such local icons as Gary Clark Jr., Joe Walsh of the Eagles and Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen.
The series precedes the album release, which is currently only tentatively scheduled for November. However, the record is definitely finished, and is also "epic" according to producer Butch Vig.
"We are officially done with the new Foo Fighters album. 23 straight days mixing! It's epic!" Vig recently tweeted. While waiting for more info, you can check out the film trailer again in the player below.
