Watch Dave Grohl terrorize his Foo Fighters bandmates in the first trailer for their new film 'STUDIO 666'

The first trailer for the new slasher comedy flick STUDIO 666 - starring Foo Fighters is here!  

 

The film features the band (playing themselves) as they move into a California mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll history to record their much anticipated 10th album.  Once in the house, Dave Grohl finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band.

 

 

 

Grohl commented on the film - “After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous music documentaries under our collective belts, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A full-length feature horror-comedy film. Like most things Foo, STUDIO 666 began with a far fetched idea that blossomed into something bigger than we ever imagined possible." 

 

Jack White previews his upcoming 'Supply Chain Issues Tour' with a live peformance of 'Taking Me Back': Watch

Jack White will hit the road in 2022  to support the 2 albums he will be releasing - Fear of the Dawn and Entering Heaven Alive.  

 

Since White's live shows differ from tour to tour - “People keep asking who’s going to be in the band, what’s the band going to be like for the tour dates… We thought it would be good to let people see who it is is ... and as rehearsals start for the tour, to film and record something to see how it’s sounding — I thought let’s do all that at once.”

 

White released the following self-directed video featuring bassist Dominic Davis, keyboardist Quincy McCrary, and drummer Daru Jones who will be by his side when his “Supply Chain Issues Tour” kicks off in April.

 

 

White says the band “can do really hard-hitting stuff, and then also really gentle acoustic numbers.  They’re such improvisational musicians. They really perform differently every time.”

 

What can you expect on the tour?  A lot! Every song from his catalog could end up being performed on any given night: “I’m doing songs from everything I’ve ever done in my life. Not much is off-limit. Everything that I was the main songwriter or main singer, then that’s kind of in our bag of tricks.  I think we ended up having over 80 the last time I went on the road…”

 

Oh yeah - he also revealed he hasn't hasn’t used a setlist at a show in 20 years (!)

Spoon share David Bowie cover in honor of the late icon's 75th birthday [LISTEN]

David Bowie would have turned 75 on January 8, 2022 - and in honor of The Starman's birthday - Amazon Music has launched the month-long [RE]DISCOVER campaign celebrating his amazing catalog of music. 

 

One of the artists involved in the campaign is Spoon - who have revealed their contribution - a cover of the song “I Can’t Give Everything Away” from Bowie's final album Blackstar.  

 

Spoon frontman Britt Daniel said of the cover - “‘I Can’t Give Everything Away’ is a tune Alex and I have been playing since we learned it for an acoustic and piano show in Mexico City in 2016.  It’s just a fantastic song, and as the last song on Bowie’s final album it doesn’t disappoint. We recorded this version live in December 2021.”
