Foo Fighters' upcoming album is dedicated to their late drummer Taylor Hawkins, and Dave Grohl’s late mother Virginia Hanlon Grohl.
Both songs alluded to grief and loss, and now the band has confirmed the album is in honour of their late bandmate, and Grohl’s mum who sadly passed away the same year.
Sharing the minimalist white cassette and album cover for the LP, which is designed by Morning Breath INC, Foos tweeted the album dedication: "For Virginia and Taylor."
The follow-up to 2021's 'Medicine at Midnight' is described as: "A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year."
The band have reunited with producer Greg Kurstin on the 10-track collection, which signals their new era.
The Foos held a global listening party this morning (May 22), where they announced their new drummer as Josh Fleese - a longtime friend of both Hawkins and Grohl.
They performed their hits 'All My Life,' 'No Son Of Mine,' 'Sky Is A Neighborhood,' 'Monkey Wrench,' and 'Aurora,' as well as two new tunes off the upcoming album, 'Rescued' and 'Under You.'
Plus, they played an unreleased track off the album, 'Nothing At All,' which has lyrics in it like, "I'll get by or maybe I won't / I can lie, say that I don't / Waste my time, baby I know / It's everything or nothing at all."
The livestream was set up as if viewers were a fly-on-the-wall at the band's rehearsal; they stopped in between songs to chat, joke around and verbally break down some of the drum parts. The whole event was more or less shot in one continuous take in black and white.
