Who’s for some more info on the latest LP from primetime rock’s main (martial) artists, the Foo Fighters? Anyone?

Written like a “love letter” to America’s wide-ranging rock n roll legacy, ‘Sonic Highways’ was laid to tape at various iconic studios in various iconic cities.

And, as will be represented in a new eight-bit ‘making of’ TV miniseries, the band collaborated with various iconic artists, like the likes of Public Enemy’s Chuck D, the Eagles’ Joe Walsh, Heart’s Nancy Wilson, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Kiss man Paul Stanley and Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes. The series is premiering via HBO in the States on 17 Oct (and perhaps here later). The LP, meanwhile, will be available on 10 Nov.

This is what Dave Grohl has to say on the whole: “This album is instantly recognisable as a Foo Fighters record, but there’s something deeper and more musical to it. I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our sound”.

Still lacking a first-listen to share of that ‘sound’, this instead is a tracklist:

Something From Nothing
The Feast and The Famine
What Did I Do?/God As My Witness
In The Clear
I Am A Rivet
