The Foo Fighters have hinted at a tour of Australia and New Zealand.

In a post on their Facebook page on Monday, the US rockers made the hint alongside a link leading to a newsletter for their new record, Album 8, which they say is due in the northern hemisphere's autumn.

"Hey AU/NZ pals... It's been WAYYY too long. If you want to make sure to stay up on all the news... Sign up by clicking the envelope here: http://www.foofighters.com/

"Cause you never know where/when the Foo's may show up. Just sayin..." the post on the band's Facebook page read.

While it reads like a massive hint the rockers will come Down Under, it may just be a ploy to get more people to sign up to their newsletter and buy their new album. The link on the Facebook post leads to a page encouraging people to sign up to their mailing list or share the link to their mailing list via Twitter and Facebook.

The Foo Fighters last rocked Auckland with Jack Black's band Tenacious D in December 2011 after playing a charity gig for Christchurch the same year.
