Soundgarden Taps Grohl To Direct Video
Soundgarden tapped Foo Fighters frontman and documentary director Dave Grohl to get behind the camera on Tuesday (December 18th) and shoot the band's new video for its song "By Crooked Steps." The track is taken from Soundgarden's first album in 16 years, King Animal, which came out last month and sold 83,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at Number Five on the Billboard album chart.
Grohl has directed a number of videos for Foo Fighters, and has completed his first feature-length documentary, Sound City, which will be released early next year. The film chronicles the history of the legendary Los Angeles studio where acts like Nirvana, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Metallica and many others recorded classic albums.
