The Foo Fighters began hinting at their 10th album at the end of October; eagle-eyed fans began spotting teasers for the record in locations around Los Angeles and online. The band also shared several teasers for the single, Shame Shame, on their Twitter page across last week.

Back in March, frontman Dave Grohl spoke about the upcoming record saying that it will be “unlike anything we’ve ever done”. He added: “There are choruses on this record that 50-fucking-thousand people are gonna sing, and it’s gonna bring everyone’s fucking hearts together in that moment.”
