More about the film:
Sound City will also be released theatrically, in association with Variance Films, Feb. 1 (cities and theaters will be announced shortly).
The film tells the story of Sound City, the legendary Van Nuys recording studio, and was inspired when Grohl purchased the Neve 8028 recording console built in 1972 from the studio (and his personal connection to Sound City began in 1991 when Nirvana recorded Nevermind there).
The recording console is considered to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment and has captured such artists as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, Guns and Roses, Fear, Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica and TONS of other legends.
