SAVE THE DATE: Sound City Doc Australian TV Premiere Feat. Fleetwood Mac September 12 - 9pm MAX TV

Dave Grohl's critically-acclaimed documentary to premiere on MAX Thursday September 12 at 9pm AEST

Rock icon, Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) makes his directorial debut in the feature length documentary, Sound City. His homage to the iconic LA recording studio, Grohl once described the star-studded film as his "most important work". The untold story of American rock, this journey through an integral part of music history will premiere on MAX Thursday September 12 at 9pm.

For over four decades, Sound City recording studios became the birthplace for some of the world's most cherished music. From Neil Young's After The Goldrush and Fleetwood Mac's eponymous album, through to Tom Petty's Damn the Torpedoes, Nirvana's Nevermind, Rage Against the Machine's self-titled release and Johnny Cash's Unchained to name just a few.

Sound City is an insightful journey through time, revealing the story of real rock 'n' roll history and celebrating the human element of music. The film examines the legacy of the now-defunct Sound City studios and its legendary, custom-built Neve 8028 recording console that was involved in the making of so many classic albums.

Through interviews with legendary musicians and producers (including Neil Young, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Rick Rubin, Lars Ulrich, Mick Fleetwood and Josh Homme), Sound City sets out to uncover and define the intangible magic within those wires and walls that was responsible for such an incredible history of contemporary music.

Along the way we learn how Mick Fleetwood met Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham at the studios, leading to them joining Fleetwood Mac. We find out why musicians and producers such as Butch Vig, Frank Black, Trent Reznor and Lars Ulrich all chose to work in an analogue environment at Sound City over other, more state of the art studios. Throughout the documentary we also track the growth of digital music and the inevitable death of analogue recording which changed the industry and Sound City forever.
