Foo Fighters Announce Forthcoming Album, ‘Concrete and Gold’
We’ve heard a handful of new Foo Fighters songs over the past few weeks as the group has rolled out fresh tunes at shows, including “Run,” “La Dee Da” and “The Sky is a Neighborhood.” Now we know where they will all come together: on the group’s upcoming ninth album, Concrete and Gold, due out on Sept. 15 on Roswell Records/RCA Records.
“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever,” Dave Grohl said. “To make a gigantic rock record but with [producer] Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”
Foo Fighters are set to headline Glastonbury on Saturday (June 24), then will headline Cal Jam 17 on Oct. 7 at the Glen Helen Regional Park with a bill that includes Queens of the Stone Age, Cage the Elephant, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Royal Blood, Babes in Toyland, Japandroids, Bob Mould, Wolf Alice, The Struts, Circa Waves, Adia Victoria, Fireball Ministry, The Obsessed, Pinky Pinky, Starcrawler, White Reaper, Big Tony & Trouble Funk and more.
