Foo Fighters Giving Away New 'Saint Cecilia' EP

(Classic Rock) The Foo Fighters have released a free five-track EP called Saint Cecilia. It's available via the band's website after a countdown clock, started earlier this month, finally reached zero.

The five-track title was recorded in the Saint Cecilia Hotel, Austin, Texas, while the band were on the last US leg of their Sonic Highways world tour. And they've dedicated the release to the victims of the Paris massacre, which led to the cancellation of the Foos' remaining European dates.

Mainman Dave Grohl says: "The Saint Cecilia Hotel, named after the patroness saint of music, is known as 'A lush retreat from the world.' That it is - 14 rooms and a small bar, tucked away in the trees within a bustling, neighborhood.

"As our van pulled up in the wee hours of September 30, 2015, I was struck with a rather impulsive idea: to record some songs on our days off, to give the world as a 'thank you' for the last two years.

"Returning to the city where the entire Sonic Highways concept was born, loading in one last time to a room that was never designed to be a recording studio a la Sonic Highways, and making some music! Fate? Destiny?

"The office was transformed into a control room and the bar was littered with microphones and cables. Amps were in the kitchen. Drums in front of the fireplace. 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." Read more here.
