The FOO FIGHTERS Are Invading a Theater Near You
It’s stories like this that really make my day! As a fan of the band FOO FIGHTERS, I was stoked to find out about their new documentary FOO FIGHTERS: BACK AND FORTH. Not only is it being screened at this years SXSW Festival, but they are bringing it to over 80 theaters across the US for one night only, APRIL 5th. Not only do fans get a night of FOO-TASTIC movie magic, but they also get to view a special live performance of their new album WASTING LIGHT… the entire way through… a week before it’s release!
FOO FIGHTERS FILM + FOO FIGHTERS PERFORMANCE = AWAZING!!! (For those of you that don’t speak Melissa, AWAZING is the combination of something that is both AWESOME and AMAZING!)
Here is a little treat for you… ROPE, the firs.t single from the FOO FIGHTERS new album WASTING LIGHT
James Moll’s documentary film will chronicle the 16 year history of the Foo Fighters: from the band’s very first songs created as cassette demos Grohl recorded during his tenure as Nirvana’s drummer through its ascent to their Grammy-winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. This chronicling of the Foo Fighters’ triumphs and tragedies will culminate in an in-depth behind the scenes perspective on the making of the new album: a process in which the band pushed itself forward by going fully back to basics and recording in Grohl’s garage completely on analog tape. No computers, no software – just a band recording an album to tape in a garage. The new record also marks the Foos’ first full-length effort with legendary producer Butch Vig, with whom Grohl worked on Nirvana’s classic album Nevermind. Former Nirvana member Krist Novoselic will also return along with other surprise guest artists.
