By Sam

It’s been a busy few weeks for Foo Fighters. Yesterday they finally announced that their ninth album Concrete and Gold will be out September 15th through Roswell Records/RCA Records. Dave Grohl made a statement regarding the LP  saying “I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever” He says he wants “to make a gigantic rock record but with [producer] Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.” (Billboard)

Here is the full track list! Pre-order the album now here. 

1. “T-Shirt”
2. “Run”
3. “Make it Right”
