American rockers the Foo Fighters are less than a month away from releasing their hotly anticipated eighth studio album ‘Sonic Highways’ to the world.

Ahead of that, the band will feature in an eight-part TV documentary showcasing the recording process across North America, which kicked off last night in the US (17th October).

UK fans won’t miss out on the documentary however as the BBC will be showing it on BBC Four and on their BBC iPlayer service.

The BBC have previously stated that BBC Four will air episodes one, two, seven and eight, and BBC iPlayer will feature the others exclusively online.

Earlier this week, the band premiered the first track to be lifted from ‘Sonic Highways’ which is entitled ‘Something From Nothing’ on BBC Radio 1 much to the delight of their fans.

The Foo Fighters shared the artwork on Twitter for their forthcoming TV documentary.

The track is everything we’ve come to expect from the Foo Fighters and more. So if ‘Something From Nothing’ is anything to go b.y then the entire album is going to be another great release.

Comments on YouTube are mixed however, and while some are loving the track, others… not so much. Though the band really can’t please everyone.

‘Sonic Highways’ will be released to the world on the 10th of November and you can pre-order it right now (iTunes) (Amazon) (Direct Vinyl). The tracklisting is as follows:

  • ‘Something From Nothing’
  • ‘The Feast And The Famine’
  • ‘Congregation’
  • ‘What Did I Do?/God As My Witness’
  • ‘Outside’
  • ‘In The Clear’
  • ‘Subterranean’
  • ‘I Am A River’

Make sure you don’t miss out on the ‘Sonic Highways’ documentary which airs tonight (October 17th) in the US on HBO as they document the recording of the album across eight of the best studios the US has to offer.
