Stern Pinball, the US entertainment company behind the gem pinball machines, James Bond 007, The Mandalorian, Godzilla, The Avengers: Infinity Quest, Jurassic Park, Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast, and more, is preparing to release a Foo Fighters pinball machine.

The animated video teaser on Facebook is soundtracked by the Foo Fighters hit, All My Life, captioned "Fighting Soon" from Stern Pinball.

On Wednesday, a limited amount of Foo Fighters pinball machines will be available to Stern's all-access members from 11 am EST (3 am AEDT), Blabbermouth reports.

A countdown is presently ticking down on the Stern Pinball website, with a message reading: "There will be a very limited number of Foo Fighters Limited Edition pinball machines available to purchase on the Stern Store. Keep an eye on the countdown for your chance to purchase one."

Earlier this month, UK radio presenter Chris Moyles sent the rumour mill into overdrive when he accidentally leaked news about Foo Fighters potentially releasing a new album next month.

Moyles said on his Radio X show, "I love that song so much - Foo Fighters, and Walk," he said after playing the 2011 single. "They've got a new album coming out in, er, March, Foo Fighters... which I'm very much looking forward to.

Of course, Foo Fighters fan pages and numerous news outlets picked up this quote and ran a story, which subsequently caused a "kerfuffle" that Moyles has apologised for.

In March 2022, the music world was rocked by the loss of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. Occurring just weeks after a one-off Australian visit, the group (itself borne out of the passing of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain) paid tribute to their late bandmate with a pair of high-profile concerts in his honour in September.

Now, the group have announced their return with a series of festival appearances throughout the first half of 2023, leading to speculation about not only who will join the band behind the kit, but how they will bounce back from such a tragedy.

On New Year's Day, Dave Grohl and the remaining members of Foo Fighters confirmed that the band would continue.

"Foo Fighters were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life," the band's New Year's post reads.
