FOO FIGHTERS UNVEIL FIRST TASTE OF NEW ALBUM;
CONFIRMED FOR SPRING 2011 RELEASE ON
Foo Fighters have launched
http://tease.foofighters.com, featuring a first taste of
"Bridge Burning," the opening track of the band's seventh full length studio album, due out this spring on
Roswell/RCA. Check out the teaser below.
The album, produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder, was recorded entirely on analog
tape in the garage of Dave Grohl's home in California's San Fernando Valley. The new record marks the
Foo Fighters' first full length effort with legendary producer Butch Vig, whom Grohl first worked with on Nirvana's classic Nevermind.
Nirvana co-founder Krist Novoselic also makes a cameo, contributing bass and accordion to "I Should
Have Known," while former Nirvana touring guitarist and longtime extended FF family member Pat Smear
now joins the permanent FF core of Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel and Chris Shiflett.
Concurrent with the album's release, Exclusive Media Group's documentary division Spitfire Pictures will be
producing a feature documentary about the Foo Fighters to be directed by Academy Award winner James
Moll (The Last Days, Running The Sahara). The documentary will chronicle the entire history of the Foo
Fighters, from the cassette demos Grohl
recorded during his tenure as Nirvana's drummer through their ascent to their Grammy-winning, multi-platinum,
arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet.
The new Foo Fighters record will be supported by an extensive world tour. The band is confirmed to headline across
the worldwide summer festival circuit, including
Washington state's Sasquatch!, the UK's Isle of White, Pink Pop in the Netherlands, Germany's Southside and
Hurricane, Oxegen in Ireland, T in the Park in Scotland, Optimus Alive in Portgual, and more to be announced as
they are confirmed.
