Foo Fighters frontman is set to premiere his ‘Sound City’ documentary at Sundance

Last week, news broke that Foo Fighters main man Dave Grohl would host his own radio show on SiriusXM’s Classic Vinyl channel, “Dave Grohl Presents Sound City,” to help promote the release of his upcoming documentary about the legendary Sound City Studios. Now, it’s confirmed Grohl will premiere “Sound City” at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

“As a first time director, I am humbled to be able to share my passion for songwriting and storytelling with this incredible cast of legendary musicians, as seen through the extraordinary story of America’s greatest unsung recording studio, Sound City,” Grohl said in an official statement. “Being included in this group of artists is a true honor, and the Sundance Film Festival is the perfect place to premiere a film about craft, integrity, and passion for art. I am over the moon!”

“Sound City” profiles the renowned Sound City Studios, where Grohl and his former band Nirvana famously tracked the group’s 1991 sophomore opus “Nevermind.” The film offers interviews and special performances from many of the musicians who have laid down tape at Sound City at one point or another during their careers. A few of the big names making appearances in the movie include Queens of the Stone Age frontman Joshua Homme, Weezer, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, Slipknot and Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor and producer Butch Vig, among others.
