Foo Fighters Album News
"Foo Fighters have confirmed the worldwide release date of the band’s long awaited follow up the 4X-Grammy-winning, international #1 Wasting Light: The band's eighth studio album of all-new material will be titled Sonic Highways and will be released globally on Monday, November 10.
Though not a soundtrack album by any stretch, Sonic Highways shares its title with the Dave Grohl-directed eight-episode HBO series described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music and premiering Friday, October 17 at 11 pm.
For the album and series, Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear wrote and recorded one song in each of these eight cities, delving into the local musical currents: how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns.
All songs feature local legends sitting in, with every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews for the HBO series, and other local personalities who became part of the process." - from Sony Music.

The new Foo Fighters album will be out Nov 10. It's called Sonic Highways and from the snippets we've heard it sounds loud!
“This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there’s something deeper and more musical to it,” said Dave Grohl.
The band recorded the album in eight different cities including Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Nashville and Austin.
“I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our ‘sound’," said Dave.
Dave Grohl and co have been working with producer Butch Vig (who did Nirvana's Nevermind). Sonic Highways clocks in at over 44 minutes and we've put the trackisting below.
