When he isn’t showing up unannounced for secret shows, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl has been working on an HBO series to coincide with the release of his band’s upcoming fall LP. HBO has finally released a teaser trailer for the show and announced that it will be titled Sonic Highways. Check out the short trailer below, and let us know what you think.
In the trailer, Grohl says of the series: “It all started with the idea of recording at different studios all over the country, doing something to make it new. We can tie all of these people and places together with these 'Sonic Highways.' This is a musical map of America.”
In a recent interview with Billboard, he said: “It’s basically the history of American music broken down to the cultural roots of each place: Why did Chicago become a blues capital? Why did country go to Nashville? Why did the first psychedelic band, Thirteenth Floor Elevators, come from Austin? How did the second line rhythm make its way to New Orleans? It’s crazy.”
