    Via Blabbermouth:

    The title and track listing of FOO FIGHTERS' upcoming seventh full-length studio album has been revealed. "Wasting Light" will be released April 12 by Roswell/RCA and will consist of the following tracks:

    01. Bridge Burning
    02. Rope
    03. Dear Rosemary
    04. White Limo
    05. Arlandria
    06. These Days
    07. Back & Forth
    08. A Matter Of Time
    09. Miss The Misery
    10. I Should Have Known
    11. Walk

    First single "Rope" will be available beginning March 1 both as a digital single and as an instant grat with the iTunes pre-order of "Wasting Light".

    Meanwhile, FOO FIGHTERS celebrated Valentine's Day with a gift to their beloved fans: Those valentines who visited (or continue to visit) whitelimo.foofighters.com received a token of affection dedicated to them by Dave Grohl: A kick-ass shot-on-VHS video of "White Limo" starring MOTÖRHEAD's own Lemmy Kilmister as the driver and Grohl (and wife Jordyn), Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear as players in scenarios no doubt familiar to any aficionado of "classic" '80s hard rock videos.

    Produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder, "Wasting Light" was recorded entirely on analog tape in the garage of Grohl's home in California's San Fernando Valley. The no-computers/no-software back to basics approach has resulted in arguably the strongest and most cohesive effort of the band's 15-year-plus career: From first single "Rope" to the frenetic opener "Bridge Burning" to the beautifully bipolar "These Days" to stunning guest spots from Bob Mould ("Dear Rosemary") and Krist Novoselic ("I Should Have Known"), "Wasting Light" is a singular triumph: a band that's headlined arenas, stadiums and festivals the world over stripping itself down to the bare essentials and coming up with a world-class band's finest hour.

    Concurrent with the album's release, Exclusive Media Group's documentary division Spitfire Pictures are producing a feature documentary about the FOO FIGHTERS directed by Academy Award winner James Moll ("The Last Days", "Running The Sahara"). Co-produced and co-financed by Exclusive Media Group and RCA Records, Moll 's documentary chronicles the entire history of the FOO FIGHTERS, from the cassette demos Grohl recorded during his tenure as NIRVANA 's drummer through their ascent to their Grammy -winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. This chronicling of the FOO FIGHTERS ' triumphs and tragedies culminates in an in-depth behind the scenes perspective on the making of the new album: A process in which the band pushed itself forward by returning to its roots and recording in Grohl 's garage completely on analog tape.​

    i did during a free preview they had a week or so back.. kinda IMO the same bland sounding Foo Fighters from the last album. White Limo was my only favorite song. granted the lyrics are good, but musically it doesn't stack up for me... might need a few more listens

    The Foo Fighters will never top their first album, but every album has a song or two that I love which is way more than I can say about any other modern rock band in existence.

    I liked Taylor Hawkins drums on the few songs that I have listend to so far, but nothing else has peaked my intrest at all.

    Foo Fighters are a guilty pleasure for me, pretty straight-ahead simple rock, but very catchy and listenable. After listening to wacked out time signatures and extreme stuff it's nice to just sit back and relax with some hooky stuff.

    I didn't even know anything about a new album being out, I will definitely have to check this out as the Foo Fighters are pretty much the ONLY commercial rock band out there that I honestly and legitimately like, also Dave Grohl is just utterly badass.
