The Foo Fighters Secret is Out
After a mysterious clock showed up on their website a few weeks ago, fans speculated what announcement the Foo Fighters had in store for us. Well, the wait is over, and the secret is out: the band has released a surprise EP, Saint Cecilia, available to download fo’ free! Along with the download came an open letter from Grohl detailing the making of the new music, as well as an allusion to the fact that the band might be going on hiatus soon. The letter is pretty long, as Grohl is not really known for being short-winded. So, click here to read it in its entirety.
The Foo Fighters have recently launched a mysterious clock on their website counting down to November 20. But what does the elusive timer mean? A couple speculations:
1. A new season of their HBO doc, Sonic Highways.
2. A new album–dropping surprise albums is so hot right now. Plus, Grohl already revealed that they’d recorded five new songs on a recent trip to Austin. And with all of the guest appearances so far on the Sonic Highways Tour, maybe a compilation album isn’t out of the question.
3. A new leg of Sonic Highways tour dates. The band has been on the road for quite a bit in support of the latest album, with overseas dates coming up next month.
Whatever it may be, I’m sure it will be AWESOME. Because everything Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters touches these days turns into one big, glistening pile of rock n’ roll awesomeness. All hail the Foo.
