Foo Fighters detail new album

2014-08-12 by Voltimand | 70 Comments
The Foo Fighters have just announced a released date, title and artwork for their upcoming 8th album, Sonic Highways.

Named after the HBO documentary series directed by Dave Grohl, the album will feature eight tracks recorded in each of the eight cities the band visited during filming, as well as guest artists from their respective music scenes.

Sonic Highways will be released world-wide on November 10th, about one month after the HBO series airs.

The album art and a track sample can be heard on the band's website:

Pre-ordering is also available.

That album art looks awful but Wasting Light was easily their best since the 90's so I'll be all over this shit when it's out.

I've never sat down to actually listen to an album start-to-finish, but I'll be a damned liar if I didn't say that they put on an amazing live performance. One of the best imo.
