FOO FIGHTERS Unveil Third 'Sonic Highways' Track, 'Congregation'
It's Friday (October 31), which means it's time for your weekly FOO FIGHTERS track. This time the song is "Congregation", which was recorded at Nashville's Southern Ground studio with assistance from Zac Brown of the ZAC BROWN BAND. According to The Pulse Of Radio, the making of the song and the musical history of the city in which it was recorded will form the basis of Friday night's third episode of "Sonic Highways", the eight-part HBO series documenting the creation of the new FOO FIGHTERS album. Each installment of the Dave Grohl-directed series follows the band to a different city to record one song for the disc. The first two episodes featured the recording of "Something From Nothing" in Chicago and "The Feast And The Famine" in Washington D.C. The "Sonic Highways" album comes out November 10. Meanwhile, Grohl might have been joking when he remarked in an interview with Studio Brussel that he's already thinking about how he wants to make the next FOO FIGHTERS album, saying, "Wait until you see what we're doing for the next record. That's some fucked up shit. I already know what we're doing for that, and it makes this look like fucking kindergarten."
ATREYU To Release New Music Via SEARCH AND DESTROY
Reactivated Southern California metallers ATREYU will release their first material in five years through Raw Power Management's record label imprint Search And Destroy. Search And Destroy, which has launched bands such as MALLORY KNOX, DON BROCO, AXEWOUND, CROSSFAITH and WHILE SHE SLEEPS, among others, has joined forces with the recently reinvigorated Spinefarm Records to sign both new and established talent moving forward. In a recent interview with Australia's Music Feeds, ATREYU drummer/vocalist Brandon Saller stated about how the band decided to get back together and start working on new music again: "I think it was probably six to eight months ago, we kind of just started talking again. It started coming up a year and a half ago, and it just wasn't right. So we started more seriously talking about it and decided that we wanted to dip our toes back in and inch our way back into playing again. It really felt right for all of us and with the state of the music world right now, it felt like a good time to do that." He continued: "It was funny because a lot of people had speculation and were talking about a lot of stuff with [the celebration of the tenth anniversary of ATREYU's second album] 'The Curse', and I think that a lot people just expected maybe some 'Curse' shows to come up when we first [announced] we were coming back. And that definitely came up, but it was the kind of thing where we just felt like making music again more than anything. So it started as kind of a… The idea for that turned into having more interest in making more music. We started writing again and jamming and went into the studio with Fred Archambault, [whom] I've done stuff with with my band HELL OR HIGHWATER; he's just a great producer and engineer. So we went into the studio and recorded some music, just to see how it felt. So we went from there and announced a couple of shows here in the States. Everything's kind of fallen into place in a pretty special way, so it's a lot of fun right now." Speaking about the direction of the new ATREYU material, Saller said: "It's hard to say. One of my favorite records that we've ever made is [2007's] 'Lead Sails Paper Anchor'. I love that record. I feel like where ATREYU is most like ATREYU should be is somewhere in the middle of 'The Curse' and [2006's] 'A Death-Grip On Yesterday' era. And I feel like the new stuff we're writing doesn't sound like that at all. It's a total reincarnation of my band and it's fucking as heavy as can be and as aggressive as can be, and it's definitely a punch in the face for heavy music in general. But we weren't really focusing on what era or what kind of record we should go back to and try to emulate, it was just, like, 'Let's give a hundred percent of everything that's inside of us that we need to get out.' I think it's blistering. We're stoked." Vocalist Alex Varkatzas had this to say about ATREYU's recently released new song "So Others May Live": "'So Others May Live' is inspired by one of my best friends, who is ex-military. The things our troops go through to protect us are pretty unreal. Their treatment after leaves a lot to be desired, as well." He continued, "The song honors them and condemns our government's constant deployment of these brave souls. The people who fight and die for us often come from a certain socio-economic background — the working class. The people making these decisions to send our nation's children to war come from positions of privilege and wealth; their kids aren't the ones getting deployed and they aren't risking their lives every day at work. Yet they order the working class to go 'keep us safe' at the drop of a hat, it feels like. It's bullshit. It's the politicians and the rich of this country waging war to keep the majority pre-occupied, so they can make money and advance their bullshit political agendas. The expense is 'expendable' working class/poor Americans' lives, never the rich."
