The Foo Fighters will release their feature-length documentary Back and Forth on June 6 as a digital iTunes release and a DVD and Blu-ray release on June 13.
The film, directed by Academy Award-winner James Moll, opened on April 5 in select US theaters, April 7 in the UK.
The documentary features details of their formation, charting their rise through the rock ‘n’ roll ranks to become one of the world’s greatest live bands and all the tests and turmoil in between spanning the band’s 16-year career. The film debuted at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival this year.
No subjects were off limits during the recording, although Grohl spoke about how it was still hard to speak about the departure of the band’s first drummer William Goldsmith. “That’s a touchy subject, one that we’d never really talked about before,” Grohl admits.
Foo Fighters just scored their first number one album in the US with the just-released LP Wasting Light. The album, which dropped April 11 in the UK and April 12 in the US, peaked in first place in 11 other countries, including the UK and Australia, and has been the band’s most successful album to date.
