Listen to Foo Fighters Radio on iHeartRadio

Foo Fighters fans can mark their calendars.  The band's eight-part documentary series "Sonic Highways" is officially scheduled to premiere Friday, October 17th at 11:00 p.m. Eastern on HBO. 

Directed by frontman Dave Grohl, "Sonic Highways" follows the Foo Fighters as they record their upcoming album.  They visited legendary studios in eight different cities across the country - Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington DC, and New York. 

The band calls it a "love letter to the history of American music" on top of a behind-the-scenes look at their "most ambitious album" yet.  The new record, however, still doesn't have an official title or release date, although it's expected out this fall.
