Foo Fighters‘ HBO special has an official air date this fall.
Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways will hit the airwaves starting Oct. 17 at 11 p.m. ET. It’ll be the first of an eight-episode series surrounding the recording of the band’s new album and chronicling the musical histories in each of the cities the series visits.
The Dave Grohl-directed series will run for an hour each episode, with all spots airing on Friday at 11 p.m. on HBO.
Chicago, Nashville and Austin are among the cities that will be visited during Sonic Highways.
The series precedes a new album from Foo Fighters, which does not yet have a release date but is scheduled for November. It will be their first album since 2011’s Wasting Light.
