Foo Fighters Live from Brighton (New Tracks & an Arcade Fire Cover)

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.

The Pretender
Cheer Up Boys, Your Make-Up is Running

Thank you so much! Didn't know how to survive without "Come alive"... Cant get "Best of you" to work, though...

Glad you enjoyed. The link to "Best of You" is fixed now. Sorry about that.
