With Foo Fighters on hiatus at the moment, Dave Grohl has had time to explore a number of side projects.

He's been playing drums with Queens of the Stone Age, as well as directing "Sound City", his debut feature.

Now, it has been announced that Grohl's documentary will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January of next year.

As Rolling Stone reports, Grohl has issued the following statement:

"As a first-time director, I am humbled to be able to share my passion for songwriting and storytelling with this incredible cast of legendary musicians, as seen through the extraordinary story of America's greatest unsung recording studio, Sound City. Being included in this group of artists is a true honor, and the Sundance Film Festival is the perfect place to premiere a film about craft, integrity and passion for art. I am over the moon!"

The film will detail the history of the recording studio based in Van Nuys, California, and was inspired by Grohl's purchase of the Neve 8028 recording console from the Sound City Studios last year. The studio is where Nirvana recorded their 1991 mega-selling album "Nevermind".
