Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' Doc Trailer Debuts: Watch

Duran Duran, Raphael Saadiq Rock the Classics at SXSW Stubb's Show

Dave Grohl of The Foo Fighters performs at Stubbs Bar-B-Q as part of SXSW 2011 on March 15, 2011 in Austin, Texas.

With Dave Grohl's directorial debut set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, the Foo Fighters' frontman's "Sound City" documentary released its trailer on Tuesday.

The trailer boasts interviews and footage of Tom Petty, Metallica, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor and more rockers who made the titular studio a home over the years.

The film chronicles the story of the Van Nuys, Calif., studio, which played host to acts ranging from Fleetwood Mac and Petty to Grohl's own Nirvana -- who recorded "Nevermind" there. Grohl now owns the studio's Neve 8028 recording console, prompting his journey into the equipment's impressive rock history.

The 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, kicks off on Jan. 17. It's seen its share of rock docs lately, with the LCD Soundsystem concert film, "Shut Up and Play the Hits," bowing at the 2012 festival. "Sound City" will be released in February.
