Just two weeks after news broke of a fall  Foo Fighters  album and TV series, HBO has posted an official trailer for the latter, titled  Sonic Highways.  

The brief clip -- just nineteen seconds long -- features  Dave Grohl  on voice over, revealing that the idea for the series "all started with the idea of recording at different studios all over the country." The video footage shows recording studios and various towns, with Grohl explaining, "You can tie all of these people and places together with these sonic highways. This is a musical map of America."

You can see the trailer now on  HBO's official youTube channel  and on the  Foos' facebook page

Concerning the forthcoming album, according to an earlier press statement, each of the eight songs was recorded in a different studio using local talent, and "every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process."

The studios featured on the album and in the HBO series are located in Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and New York.

Though HBO hasn't yet specified a premiere date for the series, it does say it will premiere "on the eve of Foo Fighters' 20th anniversary."  That would be sometime this October, 20 years after Dave Grohl recording the very first Foo Fighters songs at Robert Lang Studios in Shoreline, WA.

The HBO teaser simply says, "Coming soon."
