Foo Fighters Surprise With "Saint Cecilia EP"

Posted at November 26th, 2015 | by Guest Writer | in

After the suspense of the countdown clock on the Foo Fighter’s website, Dave Grohl revealed his surprise to fans in the form of a 5 Track EP titled Saint Cecilia. Work on the album began in October and was supposed to be a “celebration of life and music” as Dave writes, “Margaritas were made, friends came to visit, the sun went down, and before long we started making enough noise to drive the neighbors to start drinking along with us.”

The album was recorded in a room at Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin, Texas and consists of upbeat music, catchy hooks, tasty riffs and an almost youthful exuberance from the start to the end.

In the light of the Paris attacks, the project has taken an entirely different tone as Dave said, “Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world. To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song. That much can never be taken away.”

This was part of a much longer letter on their launch website which is also providing the album for free download or streaming as a tribute to the Paris victims. There is also an option to pre-order on Vinyl.
