Foo Fighters and Royal Blood at Citi Field (July 16, 2015)

By Will Oliver, September 1st 2015 — with 1 comment


Leave it to longstanding rockers Foo Fighters to turn a bad situation such as their frontman Dave Grohl breaking his leg before a massive tour, only to return with a Game Of Thrones inspired throne (with guitar necks instead of swords), able to take him from the back of the stage to the front of the crowd while he’s sitting down, all with the help of modern technology. Then again, the Foo Fighters just always seem to find a way to succeed, don’t they?

Not many modern bands are capable of truly selling out a major stadium. Don’t tell that to the Foo Fighters, who sold out not one, but two nights at Citi Field, just one of the many stadiums that they rocked this summer for their Sonic Highways tour. They brought along rising British duo Royal Blood to open up the pair of shows at Citi Field.

Hours before their show at Irving Plaza on December 5, Foo Fighters nearly caused a mini riot in New York City (in a month full of drama for the city). The rare opportunity to see them in a small venue was in celebration of the New York episode of their HBO Sonic Highways documentary series. This was the final stop, as the other cities were treated to intimate shows in the weeks prior.

They announced the show a few days ahead of the show but asked fans not to line up to buy tickets until 3 p.m. the day of. Of course, that didn’t work. Fans ended up camping over night, and when the fans that played by the rules came at 3, Irving Plaza became a clusterfuck of people desperate for tickets, with no clue as to what to do. The NYPD ended up taking control of it all and wristbanded those fans who ignored the rules and waited overnight, sending a lot of fans home disappointed.

Foo Fighters at Firefly Music Festival 2014

By Will Oliver, July 7th 2014 — with 3 comments


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.
