2011  reissue edition 2LP vinyl on 180g vinyl - Foo Fighters album 'Echoes, Silence, Patience And Grace' is the band's sixth studio release and marks the first time the band has worked with producer Gil Norton since 1997's double platinum 'The Colour And The Shape'

The 12-song set 'Echoes, Silence, Patience And Grace' may throw some fans for a loop, as tracks like 'Let It Die' and 'Erase Replace' make drastic stylistic shifts in a matter of seconds. "There's four-piece rock band sh*t, but then there are songs where the middle sections turn into this mass orchestrated swarm and ridiculous time signatures," Grohl says of the new material.
Among the rockers sure to sizzle in arenas this fall are opener 'The Pretender' ("It's a stomping Foo Fighters uptempo song, with a little bit of Chuck Berry in it") and 'Cheer Up Boys, Your Makeup Is Running' ("That will make festival grounds stomp really hard").

At the other end of the spectrum, 'The Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners' finds Grohl and guest guitarist Kaki King flexing their fingerpicking. "This song is almost banjo-picking style with hammer-ons and pull-offs," Grohl says. "I showed it to her once and she shredded it 10 times better than I've ever played it." That song was inspired by two Tasmanian miners who were tapped underground for two weeks and, while awaiting rescue, requested an iPod with Foo Fighters music on it to help lift their spirits. Grohl was alerted of the situation by a staffer at the band's Australian record company and wrote a note to the two men.

Having commemorated their tenth anniversary with a year-plus run commencing with In Your Honor (a double album the New York Times called an "unexpected magnum opus"), sold out rock arena shows and a toned down intimate theater trek, and a headlining gig at London's Hyde Park for a crowd of 85,000, the question looms larger than any in the Foo Fighters' career to date: What do they do for an encore?!? The answer comes in the form of "The Pretender," the first single from the band's sixth studio album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, out on Roswell/RCA. Produced by Gil Norton, who last worked with the band on 1997's double-platinum The Colour and The Shape (recently reissued in deluxe 10th anniversary form), Dave Grohl, bassist Nate Mendel, drummer Taylor Hawkins and guitarist Chris Shiflett have crafted a 12-track milestone that showcases and reconciles the band's every strength and sensibility in the most complex and confident Foo Fighters album to date.
