The wait is nearly over geeks, the follow-up to 2011’s “Wasting Light,” will be blasting our eardrums in November according to a recent press release. Foo Fighters’ eight studio effort will be made available through Roswell/RCA, but no title has been confirmed just yet. The Foo’s have their work cut out to produce something special to follow in the footsteps of their Grammy Award nominated album.

The album will be recorded in eight different cities across the U.S. and will feature “local legends” in each track. We can reportedly expect eight songs for each city the guys will visit to produce the album.
Frontman Dave Grohl said in a statement recently:
“I’ve pulled up the family tree of American music and exposed its roots to find inspiration for the next Foo Fighters album,”
“This is a musical map of America.”
There is also an upcoming HBO documentary series to look forward to that will chronicle the band’s city hopping road trips to record the album. The documentary is expected to be released this fall entitled “Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways”. Check out the teaser clip that features a voiceover by Grohl, who is also directing the project. “Sonic Highways” follows Grohl’s directorial debut smash hit “Sound City”. Grohl’s efforts were noted on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes as one of the Top 10 Rated Movies of 2013.
