Foo Fighters Hype New Album + Tour

Grohl and company are louder than ever.

The Foo Fighters are revving up the hype for the ever approaching release of their ninth album, Concrete and Gold.

The American rock band has been tearing up the scene since 1994, and they show no signs of slowing down. Concrete and Gold is set to be released worldwide on September 15, and it promises to be an experience of epic proportions.

“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever,” said the band’s lead singer, Dave Grohl. “To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”

The album is currently available for pre-order, which also allows die-hard fans early access for the Concrete and Gold U.S. headline tour starting October 7, but more on that later.

The harbinger of Concrete and Gold dropped earlier this month, and it is everything fans can hope for in the new album. Simply known as “Run,” the track opens in a surprisingly soft, dreamy manner.

It almost lures listeners into a false sense of calm before the intensity gets cranked up all the way. The song quickly takes a drastic turn, with a larger-than-life chorus and some seriously wicked guitar riffs. Guaranteed to wear down any replay button.

The Foo Fighters plan on kicking off their U.S. Concrete and Gold tour with what promises to be the show of a lifetime.

Cal Jam 17 will be taking place on October 7 at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, California, and will feature others names such as Queens of the Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Royal Blood.

All these bands and many, many more will be coming together for 12 hours of non-stop live music. The show will  be the Foo Fighters’ biggest one-day U.S. headline ever.  Tickets go on sale June 9.
