Dave Grohl's directorial debut, Sound City, is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and the rocker will be in attendance. His documentary examines the history of the Van Nuys, California, recording studio and was inspired by Grohl's purchase of the Neve 8028 recording console from the Sound City Studios last year.

"As a first-time director, I am humbled to be able to share my passion for songwriting and storytelling with this incredible cast of legendary musicians, as seen through the extraordinary story of America's greatest unsung recording studio, Sound City," said Grohl in a statement. "Being included in this group of artists is a true honor, and the Sundance Film Festival is the perfect place to premiere a film about craft, integrity and passion for art. I am over the moon!"

Grohl's relationship with the studio began in 1991 when Nirvana laid down the tracks for Nevermind in its booths. The Sundance Film Festival runs January 17th to 27th in Park City, Utah. For more information on Sound City, visit its website.
