Foo Fighters win Emmy Awards for ‘Sonic Highways’ series

Documentaries took the band’s latest album on a trip around the States.

Foo Fighters’ 2014 documentary series, ‘Sonic Highways’, won two awards at the 67th Emmy Awards last night (12th September).

Accompanying their latest studio album, the series took root in eight different North American cities, each location and story linking to a song on the record.

It’s picked up Emmys for ‘Outstanding Sound Mixing For Nonfiction Programming (Single Or Multi-Camera)’ and ‘Outstanding Sound Editing For Nonfiction Programming (Single or Multi-Camera)’. It missed out on two other prizes - ‘Oustanding Informational Series or Special’ and ‘Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Programming’.

Earlier this year, Foos frontman Dave Grohl hinted that a second series of ‘Sonic Highways’ could eventually emerge, potentially based in the UK. “If we went to somewhere like Abbey Road it’d be fun to interview someone like Paul McCartney or George Martin, that’d be kind of cool,” he told Billboard back in March.
