Foo Fighters Bring the Rock on Sixth Record

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl recently spoke to Billboard about the band's forthcoming sixth release, titled Echoes, Silence, Patience, and Grace. "It has always been my dream to mix Steely Dan with No Means No," Grohl said. "If anybody is going to do it, I'd love to be that guy."
Billboard gives us a sneak preview of the 12 tracks, indicating that the aesthetic shift in sound may surprise fans. "There's four-piece rock band sh*t, but then there are songs where the middle sections turn into this mass orchestrated swarm and ridiculous time signatures," Grohl added about Echoes. Grohl also informs us that two songs, "The Pretender" and "Cheer Up Boys, Your Makeup Is Running," are "stomping" and "uptempo" rock songs "that will make festival grounds stomp really hard."
The album is due out September 25 on RCA Records. This is the tracklist:
01 The Pretender
02 Let It Die
03 Erase Replace
04 Long Road to Ruin
05 Come Alive
06 Stranger Things Have Happened 07 Cheer Up Boys, Your Makeup Is Running
08 Summer's End
09 The Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners
11 But Honestly
