“Back and Forth” chronicles the 16 year history of the Foo Fighters: from the band’s very first songs created as cassette demos Dave Grohl recorded during his tenure as Nirvana’s drummer, through its ascent to their Grammy-winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet.
Produced by Nigel Sinclair (“No Direction Home: Bob Dylan”, “Amazing Journey the Story of the Who”, “The Last Play at Shea”) of Exclusive Media Group’s Spitfire Pictures, and produced and directed by Oscar(r) and Emmy(r) winner James Moll, “Back and Forth” culminates with the making of the band’s new album Wasting Light: a process in which the band pushed itself forward by going fully back to basics and recording in Grohl’s garage completely on analog tape. No computers, no software – just a band recording an album to tape in a garage. The new record also marks the Foos’ first full-length effort with legendary producer Butch Vig, with whom Grohl worked on Nirvana’s classic album Nevermind.
“Back and Forth,” will be followed by a live 3D performance from the band, playing their new album Wasting Light front to back. Check out a trailer for “Back and Forth” to get a sneak peak. For ticketing info and release date on the movie, check out the band’s official site for the film, www.foofightersfilm.com. Also, fans can follow the original White Limo on Twitter and Tumblr, as it drives across country blasting the new record. Wasting Light hits stores and online April 12th!
