LOS ANGELES, May 17 (UPI) -- Rockers the Foo Fighters announced an HBO series will document the recording of their upcoming eighth studio album.

The new album, a title for which hasn't been released, was recorded in eight different cities, allowing the band to "tap into the musical heritage and cultural fabric" each has to offer.

The Foo Fighters recorded in Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and New York. At each stop, they recorded in a legendary studio, a release from the band said.

"Each episode delves into the singular regional identity of each city-how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns-ultimately celebrating their common bond: Every artist that appears in the show, regardless of genre or locale, started as an average kid with the universal dreams of making music and making it big," the release says.

The HBO series, which also doesn't have a name or release date, was filmed along the way.

"Dave's heartfelt passion for this project is contagious and his talent as a musician and filmmaker is undeniable," said Michael Lombardo, President, HBO Programming. "We are excited to go on this journey with him and the Foo Fighters for this insider's look at how regional music inspired them to create their own new music."
