  • NEW SINGLE DEBUTED AT NUMBER 1 http://grungereport.net/?p=3129

    Haven't really been this excited about the Foos since 2006 or so.

    Yes, I have been to some Pearl Jam concerts. Several of them.

    For that price I might as well just buy the cd.

    You do get some bonus tracks and videos though... kinda tempted, but it is always nice to have the actual cd... I'll probably hate myself and get both :lol:

    Buy the cd, it's better quality than what itunes will give you and you can upload the cd to a better format than the AAC at a later date if you decide to do that. I haven't bought much in terms of digital content but I regret doing so for this reason.

    'aquire' the bonus tracks by other methods ;)

    Fair point (although I refuse to use AAC - 320kbs mp3 is my preference) - double fair point on 'acquisition'

    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    Foo Fighters hit 80 U.S. theaters on April 5 with live concert and documentary

    The Foo Fighters and "Wasting Light" are coming to a theater near you.

    On April 5, the band will perform a live concert that will reach more than 80 U.S. theaters -- a presentation that will follow screenings of the new documentary "Foo Fighters: Back and Forth," directed by Oscar-winner James Moll ("The Last Days").

    The Foo Fighters will play their seventh studio album, "Wasting Light," front-to-back during the tie-in performance, which comes a week before that new collection hits stores on April 12.

    The participating theaters will be announced by Cinedigm, a player in the alternative programming sector (sporting events and concerts, shorts, cartoons, live Q&A's, etc.) now reaching movie theaters more frequently.

    The Foo Fighters documentary, produced by Nigel Sinclair (“No Direction Home: Bob Dylan," "Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who"), will also air April 8 as a "VH1 Rock Doc" on VH1, VH1 Classic and Palladia.

    The documentary culminates with the making of "Wasting Light," which finds the band going back to basics by recording entirely on analog tape and (literally) in the garage of Dave Grohl, the former Nirvana drummer who launched the Foo Fighters as a one-man project in 1994.

    "Wasting Light" is the band's first full-length effort with Butch Vig, the producer known for Nirvana's landmark "Nevermind." That signature Seattle chapter of Grohl's life is also represented by the appearance of Krist Novoselic as one of the special guests in "Back and Forth."

    -- Geoff Boucher
