Foo Fighters to Release New Album This Fall


To coincide with the announcement of Dave Grohl’s TV series premiering on HBO, we are pleased to report to you that after all the vague details, the Foo Fighters have officially announced that they will be releasing an album before the year’s end. The as-yet-untitled effort will be the follow-up to the band’s 2011 album Wasting Light.

The press release shed some details regarding both the album and the show. The album will feature songs recorded in legendary studios spanning eight different cities–Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, New York, and Washington DC.

“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.”

As for the show, there seems to be some depth to the city selection as well as the history behind music in each. “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 show is set to premiere on the band’s 20th anniversary, with Grohl taking the reigns as director.

Stay tuned, as UTG will be sure to keep you updated regarding anything Foo.
