YES! Ben Gibbard Featured on New Foo Fighters Album

September 10, 2014
The Foo Fighters strategy to tour around the country to record their new album, Sonic Highways (11/10/14), sounded sorta gimmicky to me initially, but after watching this trailer, they've got my attention:


Ian from Fugazi in DC?! Steve Albini in Chicago?! Incredible!!!! When the Foo's came to Seattle to record a track, they evidently shot Ben Gibbard a txt and invited him down to the studio to be part of the process! Gibbard is just one of the guests involved on the record. They recorded in tons of towns and got people from those communities involved. More about the process here. In the meantime, all I can do is patiently wait for the HBO show to start in October!
