Default New album In the works

Well Dave blabbed to a fan in Stockholm at the weekend and there is now a video post on Simon’s Foo fighters live Instagram account from Lolla Stockholm announcing they are writing new music as we speak. So much for having a break! https://www.instagram.com/p/BzZY3yFg...d=k152rjggm8jy

No I-hate-us this time around, it seems. The evil is defeated

Woo hoo! I thought they'd go on I-hate-us and do something for their 25ys. Can we get both?!

I dunno, until I hear it from Nate then nothing is official yet, surely.

Question Re: New album In the works

Would you want another ‘themed’ album (like ‘Sonic Highways’, ‘In Your Honor’, ‘Wasting Light’ etc) or just strip all that shit back and concentrate on writing and recording 11-13 decent songs? Does an album need a collective idea or is that not important to you?

Asking for a friend of a friend.

If Concrete & Gold is their Beatles album, I want to hear their Pink Floyd album.
I'd love it if they something psychedelic.

I mean, every FF album turns out to have a kind of theme but they've tried the concept album, and the work itself ended up feeling a bit lost and coming last in the grandiosity of its idea (in my own opinion). I remember Nate said in an interview that they find new ways to keep it interesting for themselves, and bringing in rarely-used gear for C&G certainly kept it fresh. I think they produce their best songs when the music gets to speak for itself, without a concept justifying it. Another straight album would be fantastic.

Bring back Adam Kasper.

They’ve said many times they really like TINTL for its vibe.

One of my all time favorite records by anyone.

I’d love to hear similar songwriting again.

Just a simple no concept album. Just for a change.

Recording at 606 and the new 605/607 (not sure what they have called it) - and a July release seems very doable.

But… but I wanted to save some money next year....

Anyway... if that can't happen then a straight forward 11-13 decent songs on a CD/Vinyl is fine by me. No need for concepts every time.

Exactly!

...I mean, I probably wouldn't have ACTUALLY saved any money, but if Foos aren't touring I'd certainly feel like I am.

We need a FF frequent flyer card - points for every show that you go to which you can use towards a future show. This is an expensive hobby

If only there was something like that.
You’d certainly be in some decent credit, that’s for sure!

The title track, Concrete and Gold, had a strong Pink Floyd sound to it!
