The episode will see the band talking to Washington DC music legends, such as Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye and recording at Inner Ear Studios in nearby Arlington, Virginia. “If it weren’t for Washington DC and the music scene here, I wouldn’t be standing up here with the mic right now,” says frontman Dave Grohl onstage, in the snippet of footage.

The episode will be broadcast tomorrow (October 24) in the US on HBO and in the UK on Sunday (October 26) on BBC Four, alongside the first Chicago based episode at 10pm and 11pm respectively.

The first part of the eight episode Sonic Highways documentary series premiered last week in the US and was set in Chicago. The show will be based in a different US city and recording studio each week. Josh Homme, Dolly Parton, Public Enemy star Chuck D, Willie Nelson, LL Cool J, Beastie Boys’ Mike D, Joan Jett, Heart, US singer Bonnie Raitt and Gary Clark Jr will all appear in the show.

‘Sonic Highways’, the album, will be released on November 10.

The ‘Sonic Highways’ tracklisting is:

‘Something From Nothing’
‘The Feast And The Famine’
‘What Did I Do?/God As My Witness’
‘In The Clear’
‘I Am A River’

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters have turned down the opportunity of headlining next year’s Isle Of Wight Festival. The organiser of the festival, John Giddings, took to Twitter recently to respond to a fan’s request that he book Dave Grohl and co for the Seaclose Park event.

“You have to get Foo Fighters to headline next year. Especially after their amazing new song and with an album out soon,” Keris Abbott wrote. Giddings replied: “I wish I could, they said no. Sorry.” Isle Of Wight 2014 was headlined by Biffy Clyro, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings Of Leon. Foo Fighters, meanwhile, headlined Reading and Leeds Festival in 2012.
