FOO FIGHTERS' 'Sonic Highways' Enters BILLBOARD Chart At No. 2

FOO FIGHTERS' new studio album, "Sonic Highways", sold around 190,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on November 10 via Roswell/RCA.

"Sonic Highways" was recorded in eight different iconic studios in eight different cities over the course of a year.

The band laid down the music for the album in cities that have a great musical history and invited local legends to contribute to the sessions as well.

The results have been chronicled in an eight-part documentary series, called "Sonic Highways", that frontman Dave Grohl directed. The series premiered on HBO last month.
