You’ve been warned.
Foo Fighters are prepping plans for their 25th anniversary, and we’ve been advised to “buckle up.” In an Instagram post, the band thanked fans for their years of support and hinted at a wild year to come.
“Thank you guys for being with us year after year… for singing along and making every show the best night of our lives,” they captioned the video featuring their new 25 logo. “We’re JUST getting started, so buckle up. 2020... it’s going to be an INSANE year full of some seriously crazy s***.”
The crazy year will likely include a new album from the GRAMMY-winning band, their first since 2017’s Concrete and Gold. The Foos have been sharing shots of their potential recording setup, featuring a bathtub mic and a staircase full of drums.
Drummer Taylor Hawkins originally said over the summer that plans were underway for work on the band’s 10th studio album. "It's a long process, we do a lot of demoing and stuff,” he explained. “But I think that we'll have, I'm hoping, I think we'll have a new record by next year. Should."
The band has also been digging into the archives, releasing b-sides, demos, and live performances over the past year.
Following the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994, Dave Grohl wrote and recorded the first Foo Fighters album essentially himself. It was released in July of 1995.
The band is set for several festival appearances in 2020, starting with Something In The Water in April in Virginia Beach.
