Foo Fighters’ new album is ‘ON’ with an image of master tapes to prove it
After a quiet 2013 — in which frontman Dave Grohl worked on his "Sound City" documentary — the Foo Fighters have a message for 2014: "It's F*cking ON.” On Jan. 16, the band posted that three-word caption to Instagram with an image of master tapes labeled “LP 8.”
Those tapes likely contain the Foos’ eighth album, the follow-up to 2011's “Wasting Light.” Last August, Grohl confirmed with XFM that the band had finished writing a new album and planned to release it sometime in 2014. “I think next year is going to be a really big year for the Foo Fighters without question," Grohl said.
The album’s name and release date remain unknown. To get your Grohl fix now, listen to the recently surfaced demo tapes of his high school band Dain Bramage. It’s not bad for teen angst rock ’n’ roll.
