Cut entirely in Dave Grohl's garage, the disc is the heaviest work of the band's 16-year career. To promote the album, the Foos created a documentary about their career that hits select theaters tonight for one night only. It airs on VH1 this Friday night at 10 p.m. ET. Above, check out an exclusive preview from the film where the band discusses the build-up to their Wembley Stadium concert in the summer of 2008.
