Foo Fighters have called their eight album 'Sonic Highway'
Foo's eighth studio set, , recorded with Roswell/RCA, will be the follow up to 2011's 'Wasting Lights,' which earned an Album of the Year nomination at the Grammy Awards.
The intriguing aspect of 'Sonic Highways' is that the recording sessions took place in eight cities across the US, and were filmed as part of a HBO series about the process of making the record. One track was laid down in Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New York and Washington, D.C.
"This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there's something deeper and more musical to it," frontman Dave Grohl said in a statement. "I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our 'sound'."
Little previews of Foo's new music can be heard in the trailer of the forthcoming documentary, which Grohl directed, and each recording session also included "local legends."
