Foo Fighters Share Tour Dates, Announce Album ‘Concrete and Gold’
Big news for Foo Fighters fan! The band is releasing a new album, Concrete and Gold, in the fall and kicking off a tour in the same season! The Foo Fighters promise a new sound on Concrete and Gold, melding their rock inclinations with the pop leanings of producer Greg Kurstin. Kurstin's resume includes work with artists like Adele and Pink.
Concrete and Gold (Roswell Records/RCA Records) arrives September 15, but it is now available for pre-order. Before this newest Foo Fighters album, the band released Sonic Highways in 2014 and EP Saint Cecilia in 2015.
According to Rollingstone, Dave Grohl was happy to work on Concrete and Gold with Kurstin. He says, "Greg is the guy that we ask[ed] to be our producer because he's never made a heavy rock record before and we've never worked with a pop producer."
Two songs from Concrete and Gold have already been shared by the band: "Run" and "Lah Dee Da." Other tracks on the album will be: "T-Shirt," "Make It Right," "The Sky Is A Neighborhood," "Dirty Water," "Arrows," "Happy Ever After (Zero Hour)," "Sunday Rain," "The Line," and, of course, "Concrete and Gold."
The Foo Fighters 2017 tour kicks off at an already-sold out show on October 12 in Washington D.C. Tickets for the October 14 concert in Richmond, VA, may be ordered via Capital One's pre-sale on June 26. After that, tickets are available June 29, which is the same day fans can get a spot at the Foo Fighters one-day Cal Jam 17 festival. Cal Jam 17 is held October 7 in San Bernardino, Calif., and it additionally showcases Liam Gallagher, the Kills, Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood, Japandroids, and more.
