Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl’s documentary on the legendary Sound City recording studio will be premiered at the end of this week and then in US cinemas at the end of the month.

There is no word yet on when it will be released internationally.

The movie Spin says Grohl called his life's most important work Sound City will get its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 18.

According to NME, Grohl will perform at the premiere with a number of musicians featured in the film about the California studio where a raft of classic album's including Nirvana's Nevermind and Fleetwood Mac's Rumours were recorded.

Grohl's band – who are likely to feature on the soundtrack to the film which Grohl has also been working on – will comprise Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks, Nirvana's Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear, Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty, Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel and Chris Shiflett, Alain Johannes, Chris Goss, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk and more.

The film also features Paul McCartney, who teamed up with Grohl to front a band comprising the former members of Nirvana at the 12-12-12 Sandy benefit concert in New York on December 12.

A studio recording of Cut Me Some Slack, the song the short-lived supergroup recorded for the film, was put online on December 17. Nirvana recorded their Nevermind album at Sound City in 1991.

Grohl will also be delivering the keynote speech at this year's South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas on March 14, as well as drumming on the forthcoming Queens Of The Stone Age album
