The film documents the history of California’s Sound City studio in Van Nuys with stories from Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor and Neil Young.

Grohl will introduce the movie at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah next month. “As a first time director, I am humbled to be able to share my passion for songwriting and storytelling with this incredible cast of legendary musicians, as seen through the extraordinary story of America’s greatest unsung recording studio, Sound City. Being included in this group of artists is a true honor, and the Sundance Film Festival is the perfect place to premiere a film about craft, integrity, and passion for art. I am over the moon,” he said in a statement.

Grohl’s first work at Sound City was on Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’. He decided to make a movie about the history of the studio after he recently purchased a Neve 8028 recording console used by the studio, built in 1972.

Artists who have recorded at Sound City include Fleetwood Mac, Cheap Trick, Guns n Roses, Metallica, Slipknot and Rage Against The Machine.

He set up the company Roswell Films to make ‘Sound City’ and is credited as Producer/Director for the film.

The movie will premiere on January 18, 2013 and have a theatre screening in Australian cinemas soon after.

Dave will also be the keynote speaker for SXSW Music in Austin in March.
