Foo Fighters Confirm Sonic Highways 2
Dave Grohl confirmed to the NME, that there are plans for a new season of Sonic Highways. Grohl hints at a UK setting stating that “It might only be in England”. He has previously hinted at a second season set in the UK before.
The first Sonic Highways season resulted in a, somewhat mediocre, Foo Fighters album but in an excellent television show. No official word if the band will record another album this way, or if it would only be Grohl exploring and interviewing the music scene similar to the first season on HBO. The band have expressed that the record process was exhausting in previous interviews.
I quite enjoyed Sonic Highways, both show and record. I will admit to the record not quite living up to expectation, but only in the sense that it was going to be incredibly difficult to follow-up the exceptional Wasting Light.
I agree with this pretty much. Wasting Light was one of my favourite albums of ’11, and call me pessimistic but I didn’t expect another masterpiece like that. But Sonic Highways is very good.
I’ll admit to not watching the show however… I probably should.
So far Foo Fighters haven’t really put out anything I personally enjoy, at least not musically. But I do love the concept of just traveling and making music different places. It actually kind of inspires me, the thought of having strong memories from every single track. Thinkin bout doing the same thing now ;D
So far……? After 20 years and 8 studio records if you haven’t enjoyed anything they’ve released, what’s the point in even bothering to listen to new material from them?
Maybe because he’s not closed-minded? Bands try different things all the time and foo fighters aren’t an exception to that…
