Foo Fighters editan EP por sorpresa

Cinco temas que muestran su faceta más rockera

Parece que Foo Fighters se resisten a estar un momento sin estar en el candelero. Ya sea por discos, documentales, accidentes, cancelaciones de giras o colaboraciones de postín, parece imposible escapar a la tela mediática que Dave Grohl ha tejido alrededor de su banda. Esta vez se trata de un EP que puedes descargar gratis desde esta web.

Tanto fans como desencantados os haréis una pregunta. ¿Merece la pena? De momento podemos decir que se trata de canciones que muestran su faceta más rockera y veloz, lo que nunca puede ser malo tras los excesos AOR de "Sonic Highways". Como Grohl no da puntada sin hilo, el EP se lanza como particular respuesta a los atentados de París con un comunicado en el que, de paso, podrían habernos ofrecido razones más contundentes de las expuestas para cancelar su gira.

Tonight, Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album. I felt the need to write this foreword in light of the heartbreaking tragedies of Nov. 13th, as this project has now taken on an entirely different tone. As has everything, it seems…

The Saint Cecilia EP was put into motion back in October of this year as a celebration of life and music. The concept being that, as our world tour drew to a close this week, we wanted to share our love of both with you in return for everything you have given us.

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.

To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families. We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music. As it should be done.

Dave Grohl
