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.
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.
Much like the Dave Grohl-directed feature, Sound City, the Foo Fighters’ HBO show will be shot documentary style, and will be “a love letter to the history of American music,” according to Grohl himself.
Dave Grohl is coming to your TV set again, this time with his own show.
After much speculation, Big Tony’s Birthday Celebration at the 9:30 Club, hosted by Dave Grohl featuring Trouble Funk and some “special guests,” did in fact end up including the Foo Fighters.
Grohl’s first reaction to hearing ‘Superunknown’? “Holy s–t! This is gonna be huge! It was the perfect meeting of the Beatles and Black Sabbath.”
