Dave Grohl’s ‘Sound City’ gets multi-format release Mar 12th

Former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl makes his directing debut documenting the history of Sound City Studios called Sound City. Located in a run down neighborhood in Van Nuys, California, a Los Angeles suburb, and an even more run down building, Sound City has been home to some legendary albums including Nirvana’s breakout 1991 album Nevermind.

Grohl got the idea to tell the history of the studio after purchasing the original Neve Console sound board from the studio. Over 40 years of records have been made at the historic studio. Artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Guns N Roses, Rage Against The Machine and others join Nirvana in having recorded albums there.

The film made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in February 2013 to rave reviews and now makes its way into your homes on hi-def Blu-ray and DVD on March 12th.

A CD and vinyl soundtrack featuring many of the documentary’s artists trying to recreate the sound with the same board reinstalled at Grohl’s own studio will also be released the same day. The soundtrack includes 11 tracks of all new original material with Foo Fighters, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Paul McCartney, Pat Smear and others.
