Ahead of the screening of the second episode from their Sonic Highways HBO series, Foo Fighters have shared the next single from the album of the same name. The Feast and the Famine, was recorded at Inner East Studio in Washington, D.C., and pays tribute to the city’s hardcore punk roots.
The process of recording the song will be documented on this afternoon’s episode of Sonic Highways, which airs on Go! at 4.30pm. The episode features figures from Washington D.C.’s hardcore punk scene including Fugazi‘s Ian MacKaye and punk legends Bad Brains. It’s also where Dave Grohl kicked off his music career.
Like previous single Something From Nothing, many of lyrics in The Feast and the Famine will derive from interviews Grohl conducted with D.C. musicians and music figures. The last few weeks have been filled with Foo-related content, all in the lead-up to the release of their eight studio album.
The band have finished up their week long stint on the Late Show With David Letterman, with their final appearance including a special Foo Top Ten list, and they quiet possibly could be teasing a 2015 Australian tour.
The Foo Fighters’ 8th studio album, Sonic Highways, is due out on Monday, 10th November. Listen to the new track, The Feast and the Famine, below.
