The group plays London tonight (Aug. 30) and Paris on Wednesday; a U.K. tour is set to begin Nov. 16 in Manchester. As previously reported, initial shipments of "One By One" will come bundled with a DVD featuring live tracks and interview footage.
First single "All My Life" was delivered to U.S. radio outlets earlier this week. A videoclip was shot earlier this month in Los Angeles and directed by frontman Dave Grohl, who previously helmed the camera for the band's "Monkey Wrench" and "My Hero" clips.
It is not yet known when the group will begin a North American tour, but Rolling Stone.com is offering fans a chance to see the Foos "live on Halloween in a mystery city." Visit the site for entry details.
