DAVE GROHL TO UNVEIL NEW BAND AT SUNDANCE FESTIVAL

1/3/2013

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will unveil a new band called the Sound City Players on January 18th at a concert in Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival. Although the complete lineup of musicians has not been announced, the show will feature what a publicist described as "core musicians" as well as "special guests" who appear in Grohl's new documentary, Sound City: Real To Reel.

The film, which marks Grohl's debut as a feature director, will premiere at the Sundance festival before becoming available in theaters, on DVD and on demand on February 1st. The movie chronicles the history of Sound City, a legendary Los Angeles recording studio where acts ranging from Fleetwood Mac to Nirvana cut some of rock's most classic albums.

In addition to conducting numerous interviews with musicians and producers for the film, Grohl brought together a selection of older and more contemporary artists to create new music together for the movie and its soundtrack.

The first of these collaborations, a song called "Cut Me Some Slack," features Grohl and several other former members of Nirvana backing up Paul McCartney.

Grohl was inspired to make the film last year after purchasing Sound City's custom-built Neve 8028 recording console, considered by many to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment.

The film and soundtrack will include contributions from Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor, Rick Springfield, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Joshua Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour, and more.
