Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has announced February 1st as the worldwide release date for Sound City, the documentary he has produced and directed on the history and legacy of the title facility, a legendary and now-closed Los Angeles studio where classic albums from dozens of artists were recorded. The film includes interviews about the studio and the making of those albums with Trent Reznor, Josh Homme, Mick Fleetwood, Tom Petty, Lars Ulrich, Krist Novoselic, Corey Taylor and more. Original musical collaborations between some of the participants were also filmed.

The film will have its premiere screening at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah in late January.

A digital download version of the film is now available for pre-order at the movie’s website, for the low price of $10.

In a note to fans at the site, Grohl writes, “I started this project a little over a year ago with ONE of my good old friends (Jim Rota from the band Fireball Ministry). That’s right….just me, my drinking buddy, and a crazy idea that we should tell the story of a studio we had loved hanging around for years, and our heartbreak to see it close. It soon blossomed into something truly epic!”

Grohl calls making the film “the most incredible experience of my life,” adding, “I really feel like Sound City is my life’s most important work. I hope you do too.”
