The Foo Fighters have been rocking out for the better part of a decade, ever since their first self-titled record came out in 1995. Their methodic and tantalizing riffs blended well with the fresh, luminous vocals on tracks like “For All The Cows" and “I’ll Stick Around,” paving the way for their promising future.

As Billboard reports, our Foos will be putting their electrics in storage with Skin and Bones, an acoustic live CD recorded late last August at the Pantages Theater. The 15-track set is due out Nov. 7 by RCA and highlights an eight-piece lineup with violinist Petra Haden and keyboardist Rami Jaffee. A DVD of the performance with additional songs and behind the scenes antics is expected out later in November.

Skin and Bones is said to blend elements of their latest studio album In Your Honor with beloved tracks like “Everlong,” “My Hero,” “Big Me,” and “Walking After You”. The CD will also feature the Nirvana B-side “Marigold,” written by Dave Grohl, which the Foos have never performed live before.

The group continues the acoustic approach with a slew of fall shows: three early this month in Australia, the Oct. 21-22 gigs at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit outside San Francisco, and some opening acts for Bob Dylan in early November.

At this point, it’s probably safe to say that the cows would be pretty lucky to have them.
