Foo Fighters Confirm Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and The Eagles’ Joe Walsh Among ‘Sonic Highways’ Guests
Band member Nate Mendel calls the new tunes “fairly straight forward Foo Fighters songs and almost every one of them takes a left turn and goes off on some psychic odyssey with guest musicians in the middle.”
Dave Grohl, Gwen Stefani, 50 Cent, Alanis Morissette, Fergie were among the artists parodying ‘We Are The World’ as they sent off the late night host.
“I really believe that the environment in which you write or record an album influences the musical result.”
With the help of his fellow Foo Fighters and a little movie magic, Grohl takes on the role of Carrie White, from the classic horror movie based on Stephen King’s first novel.
The new album is planned for a Nov. 10 release date.
If the first few seconds of the Foo Fighters upcoming new record — a measly eight — let fans know anything it’s that Dave Grohl and the guys can definitely still rock.
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.
