Dave Grohl's upcoming HBO series, Sonic Highways, has just received its first full trailer and it looks freakin' awesome.
The series will document the Foo Fighters' journey to eight different recording studios around the United States. The show was filmed concurrently with the writing and recording of their upcoming album of the same name, but it will also feature in-depth looks at the musical history and culture of each of the eight locations -- Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Washington DC, and Seattle.
The trailer features clips of interviews and sessions with Ian MacKaye, Willie Nelson, Steve Albini, Pharrell Williams, Dolly Parton, Buddy Guy, and many more. Oh, and President Obama. There's also a pretty significant clip of album track "Something From Nothing" towards the end. Watch the full trailer above. The series premieres on HBO October 17th at 11 PM.
