The Lodge crew is celebrating yet another #1 record as Foo Fighters' latest, "Wasting Light," clocked in at #1 on the US Billboard Top 100 Albums chart this week! The album, mastered by Emily Lazar and Joe LaPorta, is now #1 in 12 countries!
In their nearly two decades as a band, "Wasting Light" is, surprisingly, the first Foo Fighters album to ever reach #1! The Lodge is incredibly excited to share this moment with the band as well as with our old friends, producer-extraordinaire Butch Vig (Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana), engineer James Brown (The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Nine Inch Nails) and mix engineer Alan Moulder (Against Me!, The Killers). Last week, "Wasting Light" sold 235,000 copies-- toppling sales for Adele's popular album "21"-- and the first single from the album "Rope," is going on it's sixth week at #1 on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart.
Check out Foo's video for "Rope" on their website here and if you haven't already picked up a copy of "Wasting Light," go get it now! This is an album you don't want to miss out on!
