FOO FIGHTERS RELEASE THEIR NINTH STUDIO ALBUM, CONCRETE AND GOLD, TODAY. THE FOLLOW-UP TO 2014’S SONIC HIGHWAYS WAS A DIRECT RESPONSE TO THE WAY THAT RECORD WAS MADE — INSTEAD OF TRAVELING THE COUNTRY AND RECORDING IN DIFFERENT STUDIOS, DOCUMENTING THE WHOLE THING ALONG THE WAY, THE FOOS HUNKERED DOWN QUIETLY IN ONE PLACE AND MADE THE NEW LP CLOSE TO HOME. CONCRETE AND GOLD WAS PRODUCED BY THE BAND AND GREG KURSTIN, AND THE DISC FEATURES GUEST APPEARANCES FROM JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, PAUL MCCARTNEY AND BOYZ II MEN SINGER SHAWN STOCKMAN. FOO FIGHTERS HAVE LINED UP A FALL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR THAT KICKS OFF ON OCTOBER 7TH IN SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA WITH CAL JAM 17, FEATURING QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, CAGE THE ELEPHANT, LIAM GALLAGHER, ROYAL BLOOD, THE STRUTS AND MORE.
