Foo Fighters have confirmed a new 'Sonic Highways' album and TV series

Foo Fighters have confirmed a new 'Sonic Highways' album and TV series.

The original series, which premiered on HBO last year, followed the band around the US as they recorded their eighth studio album of the same name, taking inspiration from eight different cities they visited, and now frontman Dave Grohl has teased the second series could cover the UK.

Speaking about the show, he said it, "might or might not be international ... It might only be in England. It might be in England and other places."

The 'Monkey Wrench' hitmakers had previously hinted they may visit Britain for a new series, and has now expanded on his remarks, saying it would be the perfect location because it has such a rich musical history.

He explained: "The great thing about the idea, the concept of the project, is that it can be anywhere because every city has some sort of musical history, but I don't know. Of all places in the world, England and the UK just seems like it would be shooting fish in a barrel. There's just so f**king much here."

And although the band - which will headline the Friday night of Glastonbury Festival later this month (26.06.15) - originally insisted the set of documentaries would be a one-off, Dave, 46, said after some time away they realised it was a "luxury" to make the show.

He told "By the time we were finished with 'Sonic Highways' I was just f**king exhausted. But it's kind of a magical luxury of my life that I'm able to go around and interview people and learn about the history of all these awesome places so I wouldn't just give it up that's for sure.

"The great thing about being in this band is that we don't have to do anything. Nobody ever tells us what to do or when to do it. So we kind of just figure it out. I think it's one of the reasons we've been active for so long, nobody's ever been able to tell us to stop."
