Foo Fighters to Head Out on Massive 2015 Stadium Tour


What is a band to do after they released a highly anticipated album while also having a hit docu-series about the making of the album?

Go out on tour of course.

The Foo Fighters announced last night that they will be embarking on a stadium tour next Summer. The tour will kick of in Washington, DC on the Fourth of July where the band will celebrate their 20th anniversary with a star-studded show.

After that, the Foo Fighters will hit up many United States stadiums as well as one stadium in Canada.

The three-month North American tour will then wrap up on Oct. 7, 2015 in Memphis at the FedEx Forum.

Considering how in demand tickets for this tour will be, the Foo Fighters have thought of a way to keep the scalpers at bay.

Foo Fighters Release Two New Songs


Happy Foo Fighters Friday. Like the past few Fridays, the band have once again released another track from their upcoming album, Sonic Highways.

Unlike the past couple of weeks, two songs have made their debut this week. During an in-studio performance at BBC Radio 1, a new track titled “Outside”was performed live. The live performance was ripped from the radio and is now available for everyone to hear.

“Outside” was recorded at Rancho De la Luna in Joshua Tree, CA with the Eagles’ Joe Walsh playing guitar on the song. Next week’s episode of the HBO special will take place in Los Angeles which will probably give us the background information about the recording process of the track.

In addition to the reveal of “Outside,” the Foo fighters officially dropped another song titled “What Did I Do/ God As My Witness.” Following the trend that was started with the first episode of the Sonic Highways docu-series, “What Did I Do” was recorded in Austin, TX with Gary Clark Jr. Tonight’s episode of the eight-part series will follow the band as they arrive in Austin and record the song.

It was revealed earlier in the day that the Dave Grohl-led band would be taking up residency on The Late Show with David Letterman for an entire week, beginning next Monday, Oct. 13 through next Friday, Oct. 17. On the first day of their stint, Grohl will be interviewed by Letterman.

Foo Fighters Tease New Song Under Alias


If you happen to notice a band called The Holy Shits will be performing at a venue near you, you might want to go because there’s a chance that it might be the Foo Fighters performing under an alias.

That’s exactly what happened this past weekend to audience members who headed out to see the band without really knowing what to expect.

Over the past couple of weeks, rumors had been circulating that the Foo Fighters, by their actual name, would be performing some super secret shows in London. The rumors were confirmed to be true when The Holy Shits revealed themselves.

Surprise indeed.

During one of their stop at London’s Islington Assembly Hall, the band treated fans to an instrumental version of a never-before-heard track which turned out to be one of their new songs, “Outside.” The song was weaved into a rendition of 2007’s “The Pretender.”

Fan shot video from the show (and of the song) can been seen below.

“Outside” will be featured on the Foo Fighters’ upcoming eighth album, Sonic Highways due out Nov. 10. Sonic Highways will feature eight tracks which were recorded at eight different studios in eight different cities around the United States. Sonic Highways is also the name of the band’s eight-part documentary for HBO which chronicles the filming of the new record.

Foo Fighters Release First Trailer for HBO’s “Sonic Highways”


With the announcement that their eighth studio album would be named after their HBO documentary, the Foo Fighters have unveiled the first teaser for Sonic Highways, the almost a year in the making documentary.

In the video, frontman Dave Grohl’s voice over explains to the viewer where the idea of this journey began and it all had to do with the idea that the environment that you record in will directly affect the recording process. In order to prove his point, Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters, packed their bags and headed all over the country to test this theory out.

Check out the three and a half-minute clip (believe us, you’ll watch it several times) below and jot down all the famous people who made cameos in it.

Like the voice over at the end of the trailer, this documentary is “a love letter to the history of American music” and we can believe it when you have some of music’s biggest and iconic artists making cameos and speaking to you about what kind of music helped influence them.

Sonic Highways, the documentary, will premiere on October 17 at 10 p.m CT on HBO while Sonic Highways, the album is set to hit shelves on November 10.

Now, raise your hand if you got chills watching the trailer and can’t wait for the series to premiere.

The Foo Fighters Unveil New Album Info


After making fans waiting by their computer eagerly this morning, The Foo Fighters have unveiled the news that have had people waiting around the interweb; the title of their eighth studio album.

Last week, the band had fans do a scavenger hunt on the internet, finding pieces of a photo which revealed the eight cities the band headed to to record the new album.

At the times, all the clues were pointing at the band naming the record “Eight,” but then again, they probably led fans in that direction, on purpose, in order to surprise them with the real title of the record, Sonic Highways.

The album will now shared the same title as the band’s HBO mini-series which follows them as they record the upcoming album at eight different studios in eight different cities while also exploring the music world in those locations.

The mini-series is slated to premiere on October 17 while the record will hit shelves on November 10.

The track list for the record can also be seen below which, we shouldn’t be surprised, features eight tracks.

Now, the question is, which one of these tracks does the teaser we got on Friday with frontman Dave Grohl screaming “All Rise!” belong to?
