Foo Fighters Launch ‘Vault’ Containing ‘Secrets’ of ‘Concrete and Gold’
We're only a few days away from Friday's release of Foo Fighters' new record, Concrete and Gold, and they've come up with a new way to tease it during its last week in hiding.
Specifically, they've created a digital "vault" containing clips of the music found on the album.
"Our new album Concrete and Gold is here and we’re revealing the secrets one vault at a time," they wrote on their website. "When each vault lock fills with gold, click to open it." Below the text are 14 boxes containing the album's cover art. As of now, the contents of only two boxes can be heard; one featuring a wordless choir and the other, a heavy guitar riff. Both clips are downloadable.
The band has already previewed three of the 11 new recordings, "Run," "The Sky Is a Neighborhood" and "The Line." Four others, "Sunday Rain," "La Dee Da," "Dirty Water" and "Arrows" have been performed on their recent European tour.
The band have also revealed that they're going to launch a pop-up pub in London. The Foo Fighters Arms will be open from Sept. 15-20 at 339 Cambridge Heath Road in the Bethnal Green district of London. They're taking over the Dundee Arms pub and, as their website says, they will have special Foo Fighters beers and exclusive merchandise for sale.
The image on their website contains t-shirts with the band's name fashioned into such London iconography as the Underground logo and a double-decker bus, and you can also purchase a tea set or pilsner glass with the Concrete and Gold logo. On Monday, Sept. 18, they will have a Foo Fighters themed pub quiz, with special prizes to be won.
