Eight seconds is not much time to get a good grasp of anything, especially an album. But if the first few seconds of the Foo Fighters upcoming new record — a measly eight — let fans know anything, it’s that Dave Grohl and the guys can definitely still rock.
In a snippet posted to YouTube by the band, simply called “8,” Grohl screams “All rise!” at the top of his lungs. We’ll just say, it’s hard not to comply.
The band has already announced that they have a big announcement to make on Monday, with the most obvious speculation being the they will reveal the album title and exact release date of their upcoming album.
One thing we do know is that before the release of their eighth studio album, the Foo Fighters will debut a new HBO series in October called Foo Fighters Sonic Highways. The series shows the band recording in eight cities—Austin, Texas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, Tennessee, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C.— recording one song in each location.
Foo Fighters new album will be out in November and according to Butch Vig it is “epic.”
