Here’s the cover art for the new Foo Fighters album, Sonic Highways, coming out November 10th. It is their 8th album and if you check it out, you’ll see the number 8 shows up in all 8 cities represented on the cover since the album was recorded in eight different cities, New York, Seattle, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Los Angeles, Nashville, Austin, TX and Chicago. Dave Grohl tells you what you can expect, “This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there’s something deeper and more musical to it. I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our ‘sound.’” Here’s a little snippet and a piece of video from one of the songs:

Here are the 8 songs on the album:
“Something from Nothing”
“The Feast and The Famine”
“Congregation”
“What Did I Do?/God as My Witness”
“Outside”
“In the Clear”
“Subterranean”
“I Am a River”

And, to help get you geared up for the new album, Dave has also put together an 8 part special featuring the recording process in each of the cities that we’ll be able to catch starting in October on HBO.

Can’t wait!

US Festival

Check out this shot of KCAL at the US Festival! Thanks to KCAL rocker Sean Syfers for finding this picture and sharing it with us for Throwback Thursday. You Rock, Sean! Now, do you wanna really trip out? We recently got a message from a listener asking if we wanted an old banner of ours back. He said his uncle and some friends had had stolen it from the US Festival on a dare, and it has been moving around garages of the IE for 30 something years ever since. Sadly, the uncle is in failing health and wanted to clear his conscience before he passed away, so he told his nephew to return the banner. The nephew (who wanted to remain anonymous, but is a really good guy) dropped it off:

And here it is with 4orty and Daryl holding it. The old Rock Spectrum lives in the new studio!!!
