Yeah, announcements of announcements are inherently lame. Like, just announce what you want to announce already?
But, with bands of a certain stature, the announcement of the announcement has become a part of the tradition. So, the Foo Fighters posting on Facebook that Monday will see big news is just part of the game. So let’s play!
At this point, we know Foo Fighters have a new album coming. It is expected in November, in fact. We also know that there will be an HBO series chronicling the creation of their 8th studio LP, and it will make its premiere on October 17, titled Sonic Highways.
The most obvious speculation for what will be announced will be the album title and release date. But, it could also be a fall tour. The release timeframe would also make sense with corresponding radio station Christmas events, but those announcements usually come way later.
So, for now, we wait. Or we shop at the new Foo Fighters store, which the band unveiled along with the announcement of the announcement. Nothing like a Foo Fighters t-shirt to hold you over while you wait for new music.
