Foo Fighters new album Concrete and Gold

Foo Fighters have just announced a new album. On September 15 they’ll release Concrete and Gold via Roswell/RCA. It’s the band’s ninth album, and it was produced by Greg Kurstin (The Bird and the Bee). That’s the album’s very literal artwork above.

“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever,” says Dave Grohl in a statement. “To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”

The band has also announced they’ll be hosting their own festival in Southern California, titled CAL JAM 17. It takes place on October 7 at the Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, California, and the lineup will feature Queens of the Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Royal Blood, Japandroids, Wolf Alice, Bob Mould, The Struts, Bully, Circa Waves, Babes in Toyland, Adia Victoria, Fireball Ministry, The Obsessed, Pinky Pinky, Starcrawler and White Reaper.
