The new Foo Fighters' album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, is scheduled to drop Sept 25, and the new single The Pretender (mp3) has been floating around now for a few weeks, but they just did a day of interviews and music that can be found at BBC Radio 1. The days events included a broadcast of a show from tonight (or I guess last night in the UK, which was sometime today for most of us) for some very lucky fans in Brighton. Not only did they get a taste of a few new tracks, but they were also treated to an impressive cover of Arcade Fire's Keep the Car Running. The link above has the stream, but I just happen to have to show cut up into songs for your listening pleasure. I'm also including a rar archive of the entire show in case you want it all.

In addition, here are a couple of highlights from their show in Hyde Park last year.
