Foos offer 8 seconds of 8th album

The Foo Fighters have launched an eight-second teaser clip from their upcoming eighth album, featuring mainman Dave Grohl screaming the words "All rise."

It’s a hint at just how intense the band’s latest work could be – and they’ll offer more details in a “major” announcement on Monday.

Grohl previously revealed they recorded each of the record’s tracks in a different studio, and they made a documentary episode about each session. It’s due for broadcast in November, around the time of the record’s release.

Yesterday a preview of what’s thought to be the album cover was leaked via Reddit, featuring the figure 8 and a composite image of the cities the band visited while they worked.

The Foos return to the UK to headline the Invictus Games closing ceremony next month – but more tour dates are expected.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history. He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
