Are we on the cusp of a new album release from Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters?

That definitely seems likely, at least when considering some mysterious new developments that have surfaced this week.

The latest is this short video teaser shared on Wednesday:

Earlier this week, as discovered by the Foo Fighters fans over at the band’s Reddit community, a projection displaying a burning coffin, the band’s “FF” logo and “X” has popped up on a wall in Southern California:

Second “FF X” sighting in my neck of the woods…Sherman Oaks, CA from Foofighters

This one came a couple days after another cryptic tease using the “FF” and “X” combination, this time at the Vogue Theatre in Los Angeles:

Speculation has it that this is all leading up to an album — whether an album announcement or a surprise-release itself, something’s happening.

The Foo Fighters will also perform as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7, opposite host Dave Chappelle …

It wouldn’t really be that much of a surprise if the band already has a new record ready. Back in May, Grohl talked it up and it sounded like it was pretty much in the can:

“It’s filled with anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs. It’s kind of like a dance record, but not an EDM, disco, modern dance record. It’s got groove,” said Grohl. “To me, it’s our David Bowie’s Let’s Dance record. That’s what we wanted to make, we wanted to make this really up, fun record.”

It’s worth pointing out that when released, the next Foo Fighters album would indeed be the band’s tenth (following 2017’s Concrete & Gold). The Foos have been celebrating their past records with a series of newsletter emails detailing the stories and photos behind previous records, each album being referred to with a roman numeral, too (that is, LPVII for 2011’s Wasting Light and LPVIII for 2014’s Sonic Highways album and so on).

So … yeah, something’s happening. And, knowing the Foo Fighters, it’s going to be a big deal. Stay tuned!

And, while you wait, watch the band’s new infomercial for “FreshPotix”:
