Foo Fighters Announce New Album Release Date for November 2014
The Foo Fighters announced recently that they are finishing up their eighth studio album and have now revealed the yet-t0-be-titled record will officially be out in November.
The band has revealed that the album is longer than any of their previously albums and may also feature horns for the first time, Grohl says, "Like, I couldn't just write a three-and-a-half-minute long KROQ jingle and film it for the finale of an episode about the history of music in New Orleans, ya know? We really had to step up what we do. The music is a progression or an evolution for sure, but it's a Foo Fighters record."
Grohl continues: "You'll recognise Foo Fighters in this record but you'll also be surprised by us. We're doing things that we've never done before. Honestly, there are sections of songs that will really take you by surprise."
The Foo Fighters have officially confirmed some details for their highly-anticipated eighth studio album which will serve as the follow-up to 2011′s Wasting Light and be released through Roswell/RCA Records.
Singer, Dave Grohl, has announced he will be premiering a new HBO series that will document Foo Fighters recording a different legendary studios in eight different cities including Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, DC and New York. The album release will come out around the same time as the HBO series airs in the Fall.
They released a press release that explains: "One song was recorded in each city, every song featuring local legends sitting in, and 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 and personalities that became part of the process. Each episode delves into the singular regional identity of each city-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-ultimately celebrating their common bond: Every artist that appears in the show, regardless of genre or locale, started as an average kid with the universal dreams of making music and making it big."
The first episode of the new HBO series will premiere on the eve of Foo Fighter's 20th anniversary as a band. Grohl also served as director for the project. More details to come soon.
