    Foo Fighters have announced a new album, Concrete and Gold. The LP is due out September 15th via Roswell Records/RCA Records. It is the band's ninth studio album and the follow up to 2014's Sonic Highways.

    The record was produced by Greg Kurstin, who has previously worked with Adele, Sia, and Punk. However, it was Kurstin's own band, The Bird & The Bee, that initially caught Dave Grohl's attention. He said of the band's track "Again and Again", "It blew my mind. It was so much more sophisticated than anything I'd ever heard and I became obsessed."

    Grohl explained that the band desired to make, "the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin's sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead's version of Sgt. Pepper's… or something like that."

    Foo Fighters have already released the album's first single "Run", which came along with a music video directed by Grohl. Watch it below.

    The band has also announced a tour in support of the upcoming album. The tour begins October 7th in San Bernadino at Cal Jam '17 — a festival that the band has put together that will feature the Foos along with Queens of the Stone Age, Liam Gallagher, the Kills, Japandroids, Bob Mould, White Reaper, and others. Foo Fighters tour will come to an end December 12th in Salt Lake City, Utah.

    With a new album, a tour, and their own festival, it certainly seems like fall 2017 is setting up to be the season of the Foo Fighters, and we wouldn't be surprised if their energy blossoms into an exciting new year for the band and fans alike.
