Foo Fighters have launched a new website featuring a countdown clock with audio in the background of people talking for a few minutes with Dave Grohl’s voice briefly being heard, set to expire 23 days from now. On the website, Foo Fighters’ logo is in the middle of a U.S. highway sign that resembles U.S. Route 66 (and many others). Alternative Nation has put the countdown clock and the Route 66 sign side by side in the above photo.
U.S. Route 66 (US 66 or Route 66), also known as the Will Rogers Highway and colloquially known as the Main Street of America or the Mother Road, was one of the original highways within the U.S. Highway System. Route 66 was established on November 11, 1926, with road signs erected the following year. The highway, which became one of the most famous roads in America, originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending at Santa Monica, California, covering a total of 2,448 miles (3,940 km). The announcement may involve a tour in the area or perhaps a continuation of Sonic Highways, the band having recently recorded 5 new songs in Austin shows that the band have no plans to go on hiatus in the immediate future. What do you think is next for Foo Fighters and Sonic Highways? Let us know in the comment section!
