Foo Fighters new album artwork revealed?

Foos Crop

Foo Fighters fans have pieced together an image which is thought to be the cover art for the band’s new album.

Following the announcement that the Dave Grohl and co. would reveal some “big news” next Monday 11th August, various sets of co-ordinates were posted online via the Foo Fighters official Twitter account.

At each location a poster could be found which, when pieced together, make a larger image with a figure eight in the centre. The as-yet unnamed album will be Foo Fighters’ eighth album.

The full image contains landmarks from eight US cities: Seattle, Chicago, New York, Hollywood, Washington, D.C., Austin, New Orleans and Nashville. All are cities in which the Foos are known to have recorded when making their new LP.

The new album is due for release in November and will be accompanied by mini series Sonic Highways, which will document the recording progress. Set to air on HBO, Dave Grohl will operate as director for the show following his Sound City documentary of 2013.

Dave Grohl fronts ‘Sonic Highways’ TV series trailer

Following the announcement that Dave Grohl has recorded a documentary series for HBO, a teaser trailer for the programme has been released. You can watch the clip above.

Titled Sonic Highways, the series is set to follow Grohl and his Foo Fighters bandmates as they tour historic recording studios in various locations across the USA, recording tracks in each for their forthcoming album.

“It all started with the idea of recording in different studios all over the country,” says Grohl in the voiceover. “Doing something to make it new. You can tie all of these people and places together with these ‘sonic highways’. This is a musical map of America.”

Each of the eight scheduled episodes will see the band travel to a different US city and write and record a new song, collaborating with musicians local to that area. Destinations include Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, DC and New York.

Every lyric was written on the very last day of each recording session, meaning the experiences and personalities became part of the process. Guests are set to include Chicago bluesman Buddy Guy. Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, said in a statement: “Dave’s heartfelt passion for this project is contagious and his talent as a musician and filmmaker is undeniable. We are excited to go on this journey with him and the Foo Fighters for this insider’s look at how regional music inspired them to create their own new music.”

Grohl served as director on the project following the success of his 2013 documentary film, Sound City.
