"Remember that 'break' we were taking? Well... we lied." That's what Dave Grohl had to say this morning as news broke that FOO FIGHTERS will release a new album entitled Concrete and Gold on September 15th. In a letter posted on the band's official site, Grohl calls it a "gigantic rock record," and if the recent "surprise" single "Run" is an indicator, it will be. In fact, I think "Run" is one of the best songs of 2017, and it's the one that has officially turned The Rock Daughters™ (5 & 8) into full-fledged Foo Fighters fans.

November 19, 2015: Tonight, Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album. I felt the need to write this foreword in light of the heartbreaking tragedies of Nov. 13th, as this project has now taken on an entirely different tone. As has everything, it seems...

FOO FIGHTERS have been all about Chicago lately, rocking The Cubby Bear this past Friday to celebrate the debut of their HBO mini-series, SONIC HIGHWAYS - a series rooted in Chicago, with Dave Grohl's first concert having taken place at The Cubby Bear (it was NAKED RAYGUN). Now, ahead of the November release of their new album (pre-order on Amazon or iTunes), the official video for "Something From Nothing" has arrived - combining traditional music video performance with the typography seen in so many lyric videos of late. See it below...

After releasing LULLABY VERSIONS OF FOO FIGHTERS back in 2009, the crew over at Roma Music Group have just released LULLABY VERSIONS OF FOO FIGHTERS VOLUME 2, serving up a second dozen songs originally performed by Dave Grohl and Co., each re-worked into a nursery-friendly jam for baby. Having already covered NIRVANA back in 2011, perhaps a Lullaby Version of PROBOT should be cooked up? Check out "Walk" and the full tracklisting below.

Pop MarketPop Market, "the ultimate shopping destination for music fans and collectors," has been serving up some stellar daily deals on rare vinyl of late, and today they've got something special on the eve of NIRVANA's induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The NIRVANA - NEVERMIND Super Deluxe Box Set (which I myself should get) featured 4CDs, 1 DVD, plus a book and poster. It includes the remastered album, original mixes, all the B-sides, and LIVE AT THE PARAMOUNT. It's on-sale now, but there's just about 13 hours left as of this writing, to take advantage of a great deal.

I was lucky to see NIRVANA on their IN UTERO Tour when it came through Davenport, Iowa on October 22, 1993. I also remember catching their famed LIVE AND LOUD performance when it initially aired on MTV in an amended, New Year's Eve presentation, and being bummed to learn that what they presented was not even half of the full show. Now, 20 years later, that LIVE AND LOUD performance will be seen in it's entirety when it arrives on DVD next Tuesday (pre-order via Walmart), alongside a massive IN UTERO reissue collection (full details posted here). Get a taste with NIRVANA's performances of "Scentless Apprentice" (one of my favorites) and "Heart-Shaped Box" below....
