Fresh off the back of a massive Australia/NZ stadium tour, Foo Fighters have debuted at #1 on the ARIA DVD chart with their release of the DVD/Blu Ray, Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways.
The critically acclaimed and award-winning HBO docu-series directed by Foo Fighters’ own frontman Dave Grohl, is available in a deluxe format through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
Assembled with the same passion that went into the musical odyssey that produced both the series and the current Foo Fighters album that shares its title, the DVD package features bonus footage filmed during each of the eight episodes-plus extended interviews with President Barack Obama, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, Chuck D of Public Enemy, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers, Joan Jett, Ian Mackaye of Fugazi and Minor Threat, Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood and Joe Walsh.
Described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music, Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways followed Grohl and fellow Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear as they recorded each song in a legendary studio in one of eight iconic American musical capital cities-Chicago, Washington DC, Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Seattle and New York.
The resulting eight songs were released as the eighth Foo Fighters album, each song featuring local legends sitting in, with every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews for the HBO series, and other local personalities and experiences that became part of the process.
Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways is available to fans on DVD, Blu-Ray and digitally via iTunes now!
