Sound the bells and ring the alarms, because the Foo Fighters have finally finished recording and mixing their new album.
After over a year of talks about a new album, producer Butch Vig has revealed that the superband have finished recording their eighth studio album after a year of hints about it.
Vig took to Twitter to reveal the news which made many Foo fans excited.
“We are officially done with the new Foo Fighters album,” the producer wrote on social media.
“23 straight days mixing! IT’S EPIC.”
Considering the band were talking about, we wouldn’t expect anything less from them.
At the present moment, the album has no title and might just be their longest record. But what we do know is that it will hit shelves in November, no specific date yet, through the band’s Roswell label and RCA.
The LP’s release will come a month after Dave Grohl’s HBO series is set to air. The series follows Grohl and the rest of the Foos as they travel to eight different studios to record the yet-to-be-titled album and get immersed in the musical culture in those places.
The documentary which is titled Sonic Highways also reveals the artists the band got to record with during their time traveling which includes the likes of, Gary Clark Jr., The Eagles’ Joe Walsh, and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen.
While no specific name or date has been given for the record, there are some shows lined up for them in the near future including dates in the U.K. and South Africa as well as a stop in Las Vegas for the Life is Beautiful Festival.
Oh yeah, and then there’s that crowd-funded Virginia date which shows you the power of dedicated fans.
