Happy Foo Year: “No Son Of Mine” Out Now

HAPPY FOO YEAR:

“NO SON OF MINE”

SECOND TRACK FROM FORTHCOMING 10th ALBUM OUT NOW

MEDICINE AT MIDNIGHT AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER AT http://foofighters.co/MAM

Foo Fighters are ringing in 2021—literally—with the ear-ringing new “No Son of Mine.”  The second track to be revealed from the band’s forthcoming 10th album Medicine at Midnight (out February 5th on Roswell Records/RCA Records), “No Son of Mine” is now available to stream or download, or as an instant grat track with pre-orders placed at foofighters.co/MAM

“No Son of Mine” ignites the second half of Medicine at Midnight with a lightning strike of a riFF that builds into the album’s most full-on barnstormer. Replete with nods to familiar FF influences from Queen’s “Stone Cold Crazy” to Ace of Spades/Iron Fist-era Motörhead to Metallica’s Kill ‘Em All, “No Son of Mine” features a streamlined, minimalist chassis of searing Grohl, Smear and Shiflett licks atop a steel-trap-tight Hawkins/Mendel rhythmic frame.

“This is the kind of song that just resides in all of us and if it makes sense at the time, we let it out,” Grohl explains, adding, “Lyrically it’s meant to poke at the hypocrisy of self-righteous leaders, people that are guilty of committing the crimes they’re supposedly against…”

Medicine at Midnight is produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, engineered by Darrell Thorp and mixed by Mark “Spike” Stent, and packs the following nine songs into a tight-ass 37 minutes:

Making a Fire

Shame Shame

Cloudspotter

Waiting on a War

Medicine at Midnight

No Son of Mine

Holding Poison

Chasing Birds

Love Dies Young

Foo Fighters are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, and Rami Jaffee.
