FOO FIGHTERS TEASE 'BIG NEWS' COMING ON MONDAY
Foo Fighters posted an announcement on the band's official Facebook page on Tuesday (August 5th) hinting at "big news" arriving next Monday (August 11th). The post simply stated, "Ladies and Gents...keep an eye out here for some big news coming on Monday." It's likely that the news will be related to the group's eighth studio album, which is due out this fall. The Foos have yet to reveal a title or exact release date for the set.
Producer Butch Vig recently said online that the album was finished after 23 days of mixing.
The recording of the disc took place in iconic studios in eight different cities around the United States, with the Foos also collaborating with local artists in each region.
The entire journey will be chronicled in Sonic Highways, an eight-part documentary directed by Dave Grohl that will premiere on HBO on October 17th.
The band has described the show as not just a document of the making of its new album, but a "love letter to the history of American music."
