Foo Fighters To Make Major Announcement: More Sonic Highways?

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!

    Great. This will now spawn a bevy of Alt Nation Foo articles and more bitching from Corndog about how Dave sucks balls

    • Corndog

      Ah, Dave sucking balls, it’s your favourite wish Felonious;)

      • Felonious Punk

        I’m pretty sure if Dave released a recording of himself sucking some balls, I’d eventually buy it.

        I DO have a pink teddy bear for an avatar, so that MUST mean I’m gay, right?

          God I hope so, because by that logic I’m a fucking member of Pearl Jam! Woohoo! No work tomorrow:)

    Sonic Highways (The show, not the album) was great and I look forward to seeing more of it.

  • Foo Fighters Live

    Brett, all US route signs are in that shape and design, it as much resembles route 54 or route 27 as it does route 66.

    Here’s hoping Dave takes more time with the lyrics. Worst part of Sonic Highways, IMO.
