Foo Fighters have yet to announce an extensive North American tour for 2014, but a few of the band's enterprising fans in Richmond, Va. are not only hoping the group comes to play, they're banking on it. Organizers Andrew Goldin, Brig White, John McAdorey and Lucas Krost have launched a campaign to bring the band back to town after 15 years away with the promise of tickets sold.
As Foo Fighters fans anxiously await the band's next album, drummer Taylor Hawkins is keeping busy with another side project band. He's formed the Birds of Satan with bassist Wile Hodgden and guitarist Mick Murphy, who are also in his cover band Chevy Metal. Their self-titled debut album will be released April 15. Watch a trailer for the album below.
A change of scenery can often be good for a band when recording their new music, but is it possible that Foo Fighters are taking that idea to levels that no band has done before? Rumors are flying that the unique way in which the band is recording their new album is by laying down each individual track in a different recording studio.
Foo Fighters have been somewhat quiet over the last few months, popping up long enough to let fans know that writing was under way on their new album and playing a few late year dates in Mexico in 2013 just to get in the vibe of playing music again. But now Foo Fighters have a message for all of their patiently waiting fans: "It's F---ing ON!"
Over the past 20 years, no band has consistently made entertaining videos quite like Foo Fighters. Led by their dynamic frontman Dave Grohl, the band has earned platinum album sales and racked up Grammy Awards at an impressive rate. If that weren’t enough, they’ve enhanced many of their songs by creating engaging and entertaining music videos that resonate with fans years after they debut.
