New Foo Fighters Album Release Revealed

The Foo Fighters have revealed the release date for their eighth album, which has been recorded at famous studios in eight different cities with local legends sitting in. 

Sony Music confirmed on Tuesday the band's "as-yet untitled" album will be released in November.

The band recorded each song in a different US city: Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington DC.

Frontman David Grohl wrote the lyrics in an experimental style, holding off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so that he could be inspired by the experiences, interviews for the band's upcoming TV series, and other local personalities who became part of the process.

"I've pulled up the family tree of American music and exposed its roots to find inspiration for the next Foo Fighters album," Grohl said.

The band also leaked a surprise teaser to their new TV series for the American HBO channel, Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, which features the first passage of music from the eighth album.

The rockers have also taken to Facebook to slyly suggest that they be on their way to Australia and New Zealand soon.

In the post – which was actually a link promoting this year's forthcoming eighth album - they lure us in from the outset, calling us "pals" and conversationally being like, "It's been WAYYY too long," before encouraging fans to sign up for Foo Fighters updates in the lead-up to the album's release, because they "never know where/when the Foos may show up. Just sayin..."

Let’s hope this is the real deal because it’s been three long years since The Foo Fighters last toured Australia with Jack Black's band Tenacious D.
