Foo Fighters have announced that their new album will be released this November. It’s currently untitled, but will be released via Roswell/RCA. It was recorded in eight different cities (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Washington, D.C., Nashville, New Orleans, and Seattle).
That aspect ties into the band’s HBO series: Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, which documents the recording of the album through the various cities. The album, the bands eighth, is their most ambitious yet; with at least one song from the album having been recorded in each of the cities, with local legends of the city sitting in on the sessions. Dave Grohl would hold off from putting down words to the songs until the final day of each session, in order to write lyrics inspired by the experiences.
HBO has released a teaser for the series, which features a sample of a new song that we can only assume is from the album. Find that below. Read the rest of this entry »
