Foo Fighters Continue to Tease 2020 Album: Is This Music Snippet Part of It?

It might be time to add another renowned rock band to the list of anticipated 2020 releases. Yesterday evening, Foo Fighters shared a cryptic picture and a bit of music likely teasing their so-far-untitled tenth studio LP. 

The Foos tweeted out a black and white photo of a disassembled drum kit on some steps, paired with about a minute of audio of a simple drumbeat. Along with it came the hashtags #FF2020 and #FF25, the latter alluding to the 25th anniversary of their self-titled 1995 debut album and origins as a band. 

On New Year's Day, the band tweeted out a similar photo -- this one of a microphone set up in a bathtub -- along with the same hashtags. 

News of a forthcoming album from the Foo Fighters isn't entirely new: back in September, frontman Dave Grohl told the crowd at Brazil's Rock in Rio that the band planned to start work on a new LP upon arriving back in America. Their last studio album was 2017's Concrete and Gold, which earned them their second No. 1 on Billboard 200

Those who'd prefer to revel in Dave Grohl nostalgia instead of the latest Foos project are also in luck. Yesterday, news broke that Grohl will be reuniting the surviving Nirvana members (himself, bassist Krist Novoselic and touring guitarst Pat Smear) for a live performance at Art of Elysium's 13th annual "Heaven Is Rock & Roll" gala tomorrow in Hollywood.
