American rock band the Foo Fighters are preparing to release their eighth studio album ‘Sonic Highways’ on the 10th of November and also have a TV show documenting the recording process airing this month.
The band, who recently performed a handful of shows in the UK including the closing ceremony of Prince Harry’s Invictus Games have confirmed they’ll be on US TV over five nights, from next week.
The band have recently confirmed that for five consecutive nights next week they will perform on The Late Show with David Letterman.
According to a press release the band will also be joined by some very special guests each night making this a week of unmissable performances from the Foo Fighters.
The guests have yet to be revealed but apparently they will be significant to the release of their new album ‘Sonic Highways’ which they will be promoting.
Dave Grohl, frontman for the band will also feature as a guest on the show on Monday the 13th of October ahead of the band performing later that night.
While US fans will be getting a chance to look at how their new album was recorded across eight of the best recording studios the US has to offer, UK fans won’t miss out.
BBC Four will show episodes one, two, seven and eight while episodes three to six will air on BBC iPlayer. Episode one will premiere on BBC Four on the 26th of October.
Elsewhere, fans in both the UK and the US have recently been organising campaigns to bring the Foo Fighters to their cities and so far all campaigns that we’re aware of have been hugely successful.
Most recently it was confirmed that fans in Cornwall had managed to raise £160,000 to have the band perform a special show, and it’s likely the band will agree as they have done so before.
Frontman Dave Grohl spoke highly of the first crowd-funded gig and mentioned how this could be the way forward in terms of performing shows. The campaign allows the band to agree to a date and time of their choosing.
