Foo Fighters announce new album, and more
A release date has been announced for the next Foo Fighters album which, as previously reported, was made with a back to basics approach, recorded to analogue tape in Dave Grohl’s garage. The result is said to be (albeit by their PR) Foo Fighters’ “strongest and most cohesive effort” yet.
Featuring guest appearances by Hüsker Dü axe-man Bob Mould and one-time Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, the album is now due for UK release on 11 Apr via Sony Music. Although there isn’t any preview material to listen to just yet, you can possibly get a feel for the new lo-fi Foos in this slightly surreal VHS-shot video: youtu.be/ebJ2brErERQ
In other Foos-news, it’s been confirmed a feature length Foo Fighters documentary will be released alongside the new LP. Directed by Oscar-winning director James Moll, the film will chronicle the band’s history.
Meanwhile, have a track listing.
