Foo Fighters have an upcoming single named “Walk”. The Foo’s have unveiled a six minute video which has been inspired by Falling Down which is Joel Schumacher’s 1993 violent drama. Dave Grohl, the bands frontman, portrays William Foster, a character which was originally played by Michael Douglas. In the video, he goes on a rampage through Los Angeles which follows the bad day he had.
Don’t forget to watch the video below:
The Foo’s seventh album, “Wasting Light”, is certainly a touch of magic. Just because the band bash the drums and yell at the very top of their voices doesn’t mean that they are a definate rock band. “Wasting Light” strongly focuses on the energetic rythm and the serration of the riffs. People (including myself), are saying that the album is more of a pop album than a rock ballad. However, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing; it’s good to have a bit of variation.
As you listen through the seventh studio album from the Foo’s, you cannot help but have a little sing along. Although they don’t want to be sounding like pop too often as they could lose some of the fans they’ve built up over the year.
It doesn’t hurt that band cheif chief Dave Grohl has the affable character of a hard-nosed survivor. But it’s his relentless and canny way with melodies that has made the Foos such a steady force. Hopefully there is still more of him to come.
Right from the start of “Bridge Burning” all the way through to “Walk”, it charms. The fun and exciting music feeds your ears will plenty of joy. Grohl said that ABBA and the Bee Gees influenced the album.
The only fault I can pick out of the Foo’s masterpiece is the opening cut on the single “Rope”. It has a very complicated beginning that personally I didn’t enjoy. I may be wrong though, you may enjoy it.
All throughout, “Wasting Light” has a mixture of repititous metal riffs to prog-rock riffs. Ultimately, every single on the Foo’s seventh studio album is awesome in its own little way. Irresistable music is always available from the Foo’s and this certainly reflects it.
