Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett Announces New Album, Hard Lessons

Here’s everything you need to know about Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett’s fourth solo record.

Guitarist Chris Shiflett has announced details of his fourth solo album, Hard Lessons.

To coincide with the news, the Foo Fighters six-stringer has also unveiled a new single, Welcome To Your First Heartache, which you can check out below.

“I remember one night between Foo Fighters gigs last year I went out for dinner with Dave Cobb to chit chat about making this record,” Chris explains. “He said he had a vision of me playing through an old Marshall JCM-800. So, when it came time to record, we found one on Craigslist, cranked it up and it was perfect.

“I think this record hits a little closer to mixing everywhere I’ve been musically into one big blender and comes out something a little different. Since it was my second time working with Cobb and Co. out there at RCA Studio A, I kind of knew what to expect as far as his process, so I intentionally didn’t overthink or over-demo the songs because I didn’t want to get too stuck on any ideas I brought with me. I couldn’t be more excited about the results.”

Check out new single Welcome To Your First Heartache below, and pre-order Hard Lessons – due out on June 14 worldwide, but June 21 in the UK – here.
