LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 15: Musicians Franz Stahl, Chris Shiflett, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, Taylor Hawkins and Nate Mendel of Foo Fighters attend The 58th GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on February 15, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.

It’s a big day for Foo Fighters fans filled with lots of big news.

For starters, the band announced they’ll be releasing their ninth studio album Concrete and Gold September 15.  (Track listing can be found below.)

That would be enough news for one day, but the Foo also unveiled the first batch of North American tour dates in support of the album.  (Tour dates listed below.)

Fans that pre-order the album at FooFighters.com will also be able to access tickets to the Foos’ upcoming tour first through a special pre-sale.  Fans who choose not to pre-order Concrete and Gold at FooFighters.com can still register for a secondary pre-sale opportunity.

(NOTE:  More shows will be added, so if you don’t see a show near you, don’t fret just yet.)

Oh…and if that already wasn’t enough, the Foo Fighters also announced they’ll be headlining a one-day festival called CalJam taking place October 7 at the Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, Calif.  Rounding out the festival bill is Queens of the Stone Age, Cage the Elephant, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Royal Blood, The Struts and many more.  Full festival details can be found at CalJamFest.com.

Okay…now we’re done reporting the news.  Told you it was a big day!
