Busy Fighting for the Foo
Many bands do documentaries, all bands with record deals do studio albums, and some bands do covers of famous songs. This year the Foo Fighters will be doing all three and within a short amount of time, too. According to pitchfork.com, the Foo Fighters’ cover album, called “Medium Rare”, will only be on vinyl, and it will hit stores only three days after their new studio album, “Wasting Light”.
This new cover album, “Medium Rare”, by the Foo Fighters has a lot of people excited due, in part, to the diverse set list. Ultimate-guitar.com reports that in this new album, they will be covering Paul McCartney & Wings, Prince, and Pink Floyd to name a few. On the other hand, some music fans are a little skeptical, like Senior Willie Justus who said, “They’re just putting it on vinyl to include the hipsters.” The Foo Fighters are one of the few alternative-rock arena survivors and are fighting to stay fresh.
On April 12, RCA records will release a new, all original studio album, “Wasting Light”. This will be their first original studio album in nearly four years. What is to come has many people hoping that this is more than just a rag-tag production and more like the hits people are used to hearing from the Foo Fighters.
Spring is here, and what many do not know is that this is when Spitfire Pictures does most of their work. The main project this spring for Spitfire is their new documentary, Foo Fighters. This documentary was just released at the SXSW Film Festival and will be making it to a few select theatres soon. The film traces all the way back to the band’s beginning and includes multiple interviews with the band.
With all of the hype revolving around the Foo Fighters this year, it only seems natural for them to go on tour, and that’s just what they’re doing. According to foofighters.com the tour will start in the U.S., but it will mostly be in Europe this summer. The Foo Fighters are back, and they are fighting to be back on top of the alternative-rock stage. Given the work put in this year, fans of the Foo Fighters have a lot to look forward to.
