Foo Fighters at Firefly Music Festival 2014

Foo Fighters will release their long-awaited new album later this year. Their set at Firefly didn’t feature any news songs, but that’s alright. Foo Fighters have a storied career full of songs that made up for the lack of new material shared – plus some surprises as well. Firefly did well by scheduling no one else around the Foo’s, giving everyone who wanted to see them the rightful chance.

The last (and only other) time I saw the Foo Fighters was at MSG back in 2008, and as far as I can recall, they came out with just as much fire and passion as that show. Dave Grohl was eager to please the Delaware crowd, bringing up the lovely memories he had of past visits, recalling the smell of Delaware food spot, Grotto Pizza. Guitarist Chris Shiflett played sitting down as he is healing a broken ankle, but even so the band came out fighting, opening incredibly with “Times Like These.”

Foo Fighters Will Release New Album In November

By Will Oliver, June 3rd 2014

Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters have announced that their new album will be released this November. It’s currently untitled, but will be released via Roswell/RCA. It was recorded in eight different cities (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Washington, D.C., Nashville, New Orleans, and Seattle).

That aspect ties into the band’s HBO series: Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, which documents the recording of the album through the various cities.  The album, the bands eighth, is their most ambitious yet; with at least one song from the album having been recorded in each of the cities, with local legends of the city sitting in on the sessions. Dave Grohl would hold off from putting down words to the songs until the final day of each session, in order to write lyrics inspired by the experiences.

HBO has released a teaser for the series, which features a sample of a new song that we can only assume is from the album. Find that below. Read the rest of this entry »

This past Saturday’s SNL was an enjoyable one, with Mick Jagger hosting and performing. He lined up Arcade Fire & Foo Fighters to back him up on his two performances. Jagger performed “The Last Time” with Arcade Fire & The Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture on bass. He then performed “19th Nervous Breakdown” and “It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It)” with The Foo’s.

At the end of the show Arcade Fire came back to perform “She’s A Rainbow” and “Ruby Tuesday” for a tribute to Kristen Wiig who is leaving SNL.

All three performances can be found below.

Scala And Kolacny Brothers – Everlong (Foo Fighters Cover)

By Will Oliver, June 22nd 2011 — with 1 comment

The all-female Belgian choir known as Scala And Kolacny Brothers are responsible for that incredible cover of Creep that rose to fame after being featured in The Social Network trailer. Now they’ve taken a stab at everyone’s favorite Foo Fighters song “Everlong”.

It’s posted below in the form of a music video that was directed by Mark Woollen, the same dude who did that unforgettable Social Network trailer. It’s a different interpretation of the song, but it definitely hits emotionally, no matter how you look at it.

Take a watch/listen below, via NPR:

[music video] Foo Fighters – Rope

By Will Oliver, March 16th 2011 — with 3 comments

Foo Fighters new single “Rope”  didn’t catch on with me right away, but it’s slowly growing on me. It’s official music video is totally rock & roll though. The concept is simple: It’s a video of the band playing the song in a room. There are some cool light effects that are simple, but do the job just fine. It was directed by Dave Grohl himself. How’s that for do it yourself?

“Rope” is on the bands upcoming album Wasting Light which drops on April 12th via RCA.

Check out the video below:

Foo Fighters Announce New Album: Wasting Light

By Will Oliver, February 15th 2011 — with 1 comment

Just yesterday we got an official music video for Foo Fighers new song,  “White Limo”,  a song that was on their “untitled” new album. Well that album now has a title, and it’s called Wasting Light. It will be released April 12th via Roswell/RCA.

It will be the 7th album for the band. It was produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder. Recording took place in the garage of Grohl’s home in California’s San Fernando Valley. Apparently no computers/no software were used during recording, giving the songs a raw form that may remind fans of their earlier days.

You can watch live versions of the entire album right here. First single “Rope” will be available on March 1st.

Tracklisting is posted after the jump:

[new] Foo Fighters – White Limo

By Will Oliver, February 14th 2011 — with 1 comment

A few days ago Foo Fighters played their new album in its entirety in Los Angeles. Consequence Of Sound has videos of all of them. I wasn’t even aware that these were around until I saw that Foo Fighters released a music video for one of the new songs, “White Limo”.

The posting of the new song/video was their Valentines Day gift to us. Dave’s heavy vocals caught me off guard. This sounds like they turned the clock a bit to their old days. Old fans of Foo Fighters are going to love this song. It’s really raw and a bit on the heavier side, a good mix for the Foo’s. The video has a perfect early 90s feel to it. Watch it below:

The still untitled new album is set to come out on April 12th via RCA Records. First single “Rope” will be released on February 23rd.

Hear A Snippet Of New Foo Fighters Song: Bridge Burning

By Will Oliver, January 19th 2011 — with 1 comment

Foo Fighters are coming back with a new album this year. They just released a teaser of the albums opener track “Bridge Burning”. It’s a short snippit, but it sounds like they are on the right track.

Check it out:

I also found this amazing cover that they had at their soundcloud page. It’s their take of Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street”. When The Foo Fighters are on, they’re really on. This is one of those times. It was a b-side on their My Hero single. I can’t believe I didn’t hear this until now:

Foo Fighters Should Have A New Album In A Year

By Will Oliver, April 29th 2010 — with 5 comments

According to Paste, the Foo Fighters are demoing some new songs for an eventual new album that should see the light sometime next year. Drummer Taylor Hawkins told Spinner UK the album should be out within a year. He also told them a little bit about the process so far:

“In all honesty, Dave’s got 15 or so song ideas that are awesome and we’ve already demoed some of them twice even. But it’s definitely in the fetal stages. We do a lot of demoing, it’s a large process for us. It takes a long time to do it. We don’t just say, ‘OK, let’s go make a record’, and pop in the studio and record it just like that.”

Good news. I have a good feeling about this new record. I think they took some well needed time off. Maybe Dave will incorporate elements of Them Crooked Vultures into the new sound. I think that would be pretty neat.
