After many rumors and lots of coy comments from band members, The Foo Fighters have finally confirmed that the band are in fact recording a new album.
Since last year, Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins had been dropping little hints in interviews that they had been working on new material. In an interview, Hawkins had said that Grohl was in the process of writing some new material while he was out on tour with his side project.
Late last night, the band posted a picture of the master tapes on shelf with labels that read, “Foo Fighters ‘LP 8.'” The caption that accompanied the picture was probably the icing on every Foo Fighter fans’ cake which simply read, “It’s Fucking ON!”
How else would one of the biggest rock bands of now announce their upcoming new album?
We can all rest assure that the new album will be coming out sometime in 2014, but there’s a slight chance that it might be sooner than most of us think. The band have been hinting at it for almost a year and even Grohl has said before that they had been working on it in secret.
Who knows, maybe they’ll be able to one-up Beyoncé’s secret album release.
Death Cab for Cutie just revealed that the band have headed back into the studio to work on their eighth studio album. The is new album will be their first since 2011’s Codes and Keys.
New spread today when a picture debuted on their Instagram page with a row of guitars. The caption on the photo simply read “Paintbrushes. #inthestudio #deathcab.” They have recently added a few more pictures including a plug area that’s names the Bass Cave, a tour trunk with the initials “DCFC” and lastly an amp with the caption “DCFC LP8 begins #inthestudio #deathcab.”
Cue the squeal of every indie who idolize the band here.
Earlier this year, frontman Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello took to the road to promote the tenth anniversary of their side project, The Postal Service’s album, Give Up. Te tour had been ongoing since the beginning of the year, eventually wrapping up in Chicago this past August.
While the Death Cab’s last album was in 2011, it doesn’t meant hat Gibbard had been away from music at all. The singer released a solo album titled, Former Lives last October. As for Death Cab the full band, they played their break out album, Transatlanticism, in full during their tour stop in Seattle during the Bumbershoot festival in celebration of the tenth anniversary of that album.
