LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The Foo Fighters took time out from finishing their new album to unveil some new tunes and dust off some oldies at a secret club show for fans, family members and famous friends in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Among the famous faces in the crowd at Palladino's were actors Ryan Phillippe, Amanda Seyfried and Shane West who took in a set list that boasted such hits as opener "Times Like These," "My Hero," "For All The Cows," "Generator," "The Pretender" and "Learn To Fly."

The band also debuted several songs, including "Dear Rosemary," "White Limo," and "Back and Forth." The latter which may end up as the title of their seventh album, band frontman Dave Grohl told the crowd.

On one new song, presumably called "I Should Have Known," Grohl was joined on stage by former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic, who reportedly plays accordion on the new album.

The album, produced by Butch Vig (Nirvana's "Nevermind") in Grohl's home studio, marks the follow-up to 2007's "Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace."
