Isle of Wight Festival headliner reveals new album title

Isle of Wight Festival headline act Foo Fighters have announced their new album will be named Wasting Light.

The US-based rockers - made up of Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear - have revealed their seventh full-length studio record is to feature 11 brand new tracks and will be released on April 12 2011, in time for Isle of Wight Festival-goers to listen to prior to the annual music event.

Fans of the Seattle-based band, which formed in 1994, will also no doubt be pleased to hear the first single from Wasting Light - Rope - will be released on March 1 in both digital single and iTunes downloads.

With Foo Fighters leading the Isle of Wight Festival main stage line-up on the Saturday night (June 11th 2011), a whole host of other acts have also signed up to appear at the annual music event, including Kings of Leon, Kasabian, Beady Eye, Pixie Lott and Plan B.
