New Foo Fighters album. F*** Yeah!

The band began recording their seventh studio album in August 2010 with producer Butch Vig, who had previously produced the two new tracks for the band's Greatest Hits album. The album was recorded in Dave Grohl's garage using only analog equipment. Vig said in an interview with MTV that the album was entirely analog until post-mastering. Pat Smear was present in many photos posted by Grohl on twitter and a press release in December confirmed Smear played on every track on the album and was considered a core member of the band once again, having initially left as a full time member in 1997 before returning as a touring guitarist in 2006.

The first single from Wasting, titled "Rope", was released to radio on February 23rd. The album is set to be released April 12, 2011. In addition to an upcoming documentary and a new studio album of all original material the Foo Fighters are also releasing a cover album. The record, which is to be called Medium Rare, will feature the Foo Fighter’s renditions of songs from groups like Cream, Pink Floyd and The Ramones. The album will be released on April 16th as a limited-edition vinyl for Record Store Day.

Here's Rope. A seriously killer song. If the whole album is as good as this song, could be their best album yet
