FOO FIGHTERS Release Surprise EP, 01070725, Including DEAD KENNEDYS Cover
Foo Fighters are kicking the weekend off right, with a five-track EP release. How nice of them? The Foos have an affinity for weirdly numbered EP releases, as they released a collection of EPs recently including 00950025 in July, two live EPs called 00111125 – Live in London, and 00070725 Live at Studio 606, and last week's Area 51 tribute – 00050525.
This week's release sees a Dead Kennedys cover, a cover of The Arcade Fire and three previous B-sides. As Spin explains:
“If Ever” was originally released as a B-side for “The Pretender,” from the band’s 2007 album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace; the EP also includes a demo version of “Come Alive,” from that same album, and “Seda,” a bonus track.
The Foos are hoping to put out a new album next year.
