Win A Copy Of Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' Movie Album 'Sound City - Real To Reel' (Competition)

Dave Grohl’s movie 'Sound City' is out on Blu-Ray and DVD formats next week, on Monday 11th March. The movie's accompanying album 'Sound City - Real to Reel' is out the very same day and you could be in with a chance of winning one of three copies Stereoboard has to give away in our new competition below.

Image'Sound City', the film, was conceived by Grohl after purchasing the legendary custom-built Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City Studios last year. The board, built in 1972, is considered by many to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment, having recorded such artists as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, Guns and Roses, Fear, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Slipknot, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, and countless other musical legends over the past 40 years.

"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'. Being included in this group of artists is a true honor, and the Sundance Film Festival is the perfect place to première a film about craft, integrity, and passion for art. I am over the moon!"

Through interviews with the artists and producers that created decades of musical history at Sound City, the film showcases the amazing history of the studio, focuses on the albums recorded there that went on to change the world, then explores the human element of music in an age of technology, and features performances of new music created exclusively for the film.

Grohl's personal connection to Sound City began with the 1991 recording of Nirvana's breakthrough album, 'Nevermind'. Selling over 30 million copies worldwide, 'Nevermind' changed the entire musical landscape and forever altered the course of Dave Grohl's life.

The movie's accompanying album 'Sound City - Real to Reel' is released on Monday 11th March. Check out our new competition below to win one of three copies we have to give away!
