Yup. That’s it. The first eight, intense seconds (listen below) of Foo Fighters’ eighth studio album has been released by Dave Grohl and co. today. It is 8/8, after all.
Did anyone expect a ballad to kick it off? Dave is at his screamo best, leaving us hanging and desperately waiting for the band to kick it into high gear, but alas, it doesn’t happen. You bunch of teases.
The band will release their as-yet-untitled 13th album in November, with more details to be revealed on Monday.
Producer Butch Vig describes the effort as “epic,” according to NME. The release will be accompanied by a Dave Grohl-helmed mini-series Sonic Highways, which will document the recording progress.
