On February 1, rock band Foo Fighters, fronted by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, confirmed their plans to release a new album on April 11 in the UK and April 12 in the US.
The yet-to-be-titled album, their seventh full-length LP, was produced by Nirvana producer Butch Vig. Following a leaked snippet of the opening track "Bridge Burning," the band just released another "morsel" of music from the record at Foofighters.fm.
Late last month the band previewed the entire album at a small show at the Velvet Jones club in Santa Barbara, California, and Grohl claims it will be their "heaviest" album yet, according to
Three of Foo Fighters' previous six albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, with all six being nominated. Their last effort, 2008's Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, won a Grammy Award and Brit Award for Best International Album, in addition to reaching number one in four countries.
The band is set to tour Europe this summer and will headline the NME Awards Big Gig on February 25 at Wembley Arena in London.
