With bands of a certain stature, the announcement of the announcement has become a part of the tradition. So, the Foo Fighters posting on Facebook that Monday will see big news is just part of the game.
Foo Fighters’ HBO special has an official air date this fall.
A new Foo Fighters album grows ever closer, accompanied by an HBO series in October — and according to Dave Grohl, it’ll be a nice alternative to the singing competitions of today.
“We’re doing things that we’ve never done before. And I want to say that it’s only eight songs but I think it might be our longest record because, as I was writing these songs, I had to take a cinematic approach,” Dave Grohl said.
Is Dave Grohl a Baby Scorsese in the making?
She’s jammed with the Foo Fighters, and produced Pat Smear’s ex-band, so it makes sense.
Last September, Grohl reunited with his former Dain Bramage bandmates for a portrait that was posted on Twitter, although there’s no indication if the photo is indicative of an impending reunion.
Paul McCartney, Elton John and Prince were among those to add to their lengthy list of greatest hits in 2013.
“It’s true that in general the mainstream media tends to – and this is normal human nature – pay attention to bands that do well in New York or L.A. They end up getting more attention, because those are the media centers. But there’s a lot of area, what people call the ‘flyover states,’ and those people who live there love their rock and roll, and are loyal to their bands.”
Dave Grohl didn’t give away much, but they did say this: there’s going to be a new Foo Fighters album and it’s coming out in 2014.
