    Looks like they're gonna try that "indefinite hiatus" thing again, too. I remember when Dave declared that in 2012 and was in the studio three months later.

    Eh, they've basically been on the road nonstop since Sonic Highways was released, and they've done a million and 1 things in between, all with a broken leg Dave.
    I think they deserve to take off as much time as they want at this point. After a new album, world tour and a 2 EPs (Songs from the Laundry room and Saint Cecelia), I think even I could use a break from the Foo Fighters myself.

    I never said they didn't, I just said I doubt Dave will stick to it because he's a workaholic. Trust me, I'm not trying to talk shit about Dave. I get it. They can do whatever they want.

    EP is good, loving Iron Rooster. They deserve a break, as they/Dave seem to not had a break since Sound City which was released 2 1/2 years ago. Seems longer....!

    All 147 Foo fighters songs ranked from worst to best. According to SPIN anyway. Can't say I personally agree with the list 100%, but it's a good read either way.

    Soooo...official announcement later tonight. Either the long-rumored breakup / hiatus, or season two of Sonic Highways (wishful thinking).

    Article.

    The band is going on an indefinite hiatus: http://www.avclub.com/article/new-da...mminent-233153

    Not entirely surprised but I understand why as at least they'll come back.

    Though that interview was from January, that's not exactly ten years ago...can't see it being anything else.

    This reminds me of all the people saying TR "broke up" Nine Inch Nails just because he said he wanted a break from touring.

    They announced the break months ago with the Saint Cecilia EP. It's like people think they were just lying or trying to hide problems between the members.

    oh man, there is me waiting for the new Queens record and all I get is another Foo Fighters single...

    but I have to confess that I they'd put out more songs like this, white limo or low I would buy their record in no time.

    ... They're actually coming to Birmingham! We rarely get rock shows of this caliber, so I'm excited about that. Here's to not driving to Atlanta! Please take note, Mr. Reznor. The only hometown NIN show to date was 2006, and sadly that was a few months before my interest in the band was renewed.

    "Sky is a Neighborhood" melody kinda sounds like a Portugal. The Man song to me, especially in the chorus. Anybody else see the connection?

    I just think it sucks...super generic and forced. I really liked "Run" too and was a little excited.

    I think it's great! But then again, I heard a recording of a live version first and "meh" was my first impression of it as well.
    The studio version packs much more of a punch than the live versions I've heard.

    I really dig both the songs off the new records so far. Saw videos of some of the other songs coming up played live, and they're not bad either.
    So far, I'm really getting into this era of the foos!

    They come and go for me. My "true" introduction to the foos was "The Colour and the Shape" (I say "true" because technically the first foo song I heard was "Big Me" When I saw the video on Much Music, but it wasn't until I saw the Monkey Wrench video that I knew this band was something special)

    I went out and bought the colour and the shape, and it instantly resonated with me. However, when "There is nothing left to lose" came out, I hated it and abandoned them.
    Then, One by One came out and I was fully back in foo mode! Then In your honor and Echoes, Silence...etc came out and I jumped off again. Wasted Light brought me back in, but Sonic Highways pushed me away.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Foo Fighters records. The ones that are good, are realllly good. But, they do have a lot of lull's in their discography. I'll give ya that.

    Speaking of The Colour and the shape.... why do I no longer have this record in my CD collection???? WTF.... What Blasphemy is this? Where did it go? Straight to the thrift store for me today to see if I can find a copy for $2 I guess....

    They posted a teaser of a new song today. Sounds pretty badass.

    I just finished my first listen, the record has a very "classic rock" vibe to it. Like something you'd hear in the 70s or earlier. Lots of classic rock influence here.
    It's better than Sonic Highways (I hated that record), but I won't be placing this record high on my "Best of the foos" album list.

    The stand our tracks for me were both the singles, 'Run' and 'The Sky is a Neighborhood'

    I probably won't be listening to this record very often. It wasn't awful, but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

    This is the best thing they've done in years. Arrows, Dirty Water, and Sunday Rain are early standouts for me.
