Surviving Nirvana Members Rumored To Reunite Onstage At Cal Jam

That set featured various guests including Joan Jett and John McCauley (Deer Tick), both of whom are scheduled to appear at the festival. Novoselic‘s band Giants In The Trees will perfom as well.

“Dear Everybody –

Remember that “break” we were taking?

Well…. we lied.

We just spent the last 6 months secretly making a gigantic new foo fighters album with our friend/genius/mastermind Greg Kurstin that will undoubtedly fry stereos from here to Fukuoka. Start saving your speaker money now. Sorry. It’s big.

It’s called Concrete And Gold, comes out Sept. 15th, and has more twists and turns than a live senate hearing. Like a box of really loud chocolates. Hope you’re hungry.

And what better way to celebrate our biggest sounding album ever than to invite 50,000 of you to come throw down with 22 of our favorite bands Oct 7th at the Glen Helen Regional Park + Fairgrounds? That’s right. We throw one hell of a party you know…..

See you there. It’s gonna go off.

Bye”
