The Foo Fighters have announced a new album, Concrete and Gold, as well as a series of US tour dates in the fall.
The tour will run, playing arenas through mid-October to mid-December. Directly before the tour, they will host Cal Jam 17, a one-day festival also featuring Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood, Cage the Elephant, the Kills, Japandroids, and former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher. The festival name is a tribute to the original California Jam festival, which occurred in 1974.
Concrete and Gold will be released on September 15th through Roswell/RCA Records. The album was produced by Greg Kurstin, who has previously worked with Adele and Sia. Frontman Dave Grohl told Rolling Stone that “[Kurstin] is the guy we ask to be our producer because he’s never made a heavy rock record before and we’ve never worked with a pop producer.” So far, a single, “Run,” has been released and the band recently performed another new song, “Lah Dee Da,” at Iceland’s Secret Solstice Festival.
The Foo Fighter’s latest studio album was 2014’s Sonic Highways. The band also released an EP, Saint Cecilia, in 2015.
