    Dave Grohl's New HBO Series 'Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways' Sets Premiere Date[​IMG]

    The rock band fronted by Dave Grohl has booked a weeklong stay at CBS' The Late Show With David Letterman the week of Monday, Oct. 13 through Friday, Oct. 17. The band will play covers of music from the cities that inspired their forthcoming eighth album, Sonic Highways. To kick off the week, Grohl will be interviewed by Letterman on Oct. 13.

    The Foo Fighters' week coincides with its eight-part HBO series, Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways. It premieres Oct. 17 and chronicles the making of the upcoming album Sonic Highways, which hits stores Nov. 10 via Roswell/RCA. Both the series and the album features local musicians from eight cities — Austin, Chicago, L.A., Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C. — some of whom will join the band on The Late Show.

    For the album, Grohl, along with bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear, wrote and recorded one song in each of the eight cities, with the intent to explore how each region shaped the featured musicians.

    Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways is directed by Grohl for Roswell Films, a division of Roswell Records. It was penned by Mark Monroe and Grohl, who executive produces along with James A. Rota and John Ramsay.

    8:31 a.m. An earlier version of this story inaccurately stated that the band would be performing songs from Sonic Highways on The Late Show. THR regrets the error.

    I like the band but Grohl is way over exposed. He needs to go away for a good 5 years and not have his fuckin' face show up on every single concert and awards show.

    One of the best things about Grohl's huge success is that it makes Courtney Love even more miserable.

    grohl is a pretty good songwriter but seems to be way overreaching with the concept of this new record. with all the ancillary press and assorted bullshit that's been coming with it, it needs to be really good. and the couple clips i heard sound like a band that's out of ideas (which in my opinion they have been slowly running out of over the past 15 years). but i'll have to hear all the songs before i can make that conclusion.

    I'm a fan, but I have to admit, I'm a little put off that they did a song with Carrie Underwood for the album.

    :no: @BethsWonkyEye says they are over exposed and need to go away for 5 years.

    WUS Booey: "Doesn't Grohl know that Howard has a larger audience than any of the morning or late night shows?"
