"Foo Fighters may just be the last great American rock band" - The Independent, London

The Foo Fighters have always been capable of both balls-out aggression and lady-killing melodic tendencies, and nowhere is this more apparent than on Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. Returning with their sixth album in a decade, frontman Dave Grohl and company celebrate their return with a cross Canada tour to support the latest work.

For the follow-up to In Your Honor, the band decided to call in The Colour and the Shape producer Gil Norton. The new album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, was released on September 25th and debuted at #1 on the Top 200 SoundScan Chart. The album's first single, "The Pretender", hit radio in early August and quickly climbed the rock chart where it held at #1 for 14 consecutive weeks. The second single, "Long Road to Ruin", was serviced to rock radio November 5th and has already climbed to #2 on the Rock Radio charts.

Don't miss the Foo Fighters at the Scotiabank Place on Wednesday March 19, 2008!

"Who needs a Led Zeppelin reunion? Who is going to tell the Rolling Stones that they've been knocked off their perch? Foo Fighters are now the benchmark for live bands to beat." - Manchester Evening News
