When the Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl fell and broke his leg onstage during a show in Sweden a couple of years back, a local paramedic named Johan held it in place until a cast could be applied. The band was performing only the second song of their set; Dave would go on to finish the show sitting in a chair, with the paramedic holding his broken leg. Dave was reunited with Johan recently, with the Foo Fighters posting a photo of the two on the band’s official Facebook page. Their new album, Concrete And Gold, was released today.
Early this summer, Imagine Dragons released “Whatever It Takes,” a single from their third studio album Evolve. Now the band have supplied a lyric video for the song featuring 360-degree technology. You can drag and pan through a digital space where the song’s lyrics appear in three dimensions among shooting stars and geometric pyramids. Evolve peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart when it debuted in June, and the Evolve World Tour kicks off in Phoenix on September 26.
When Weezer began work on their 11th studio album, they intended to make a “Black” album in response to their 2016 “White Album.” Instead, we get an homage to the California lifestyle: Pacific Daydream, is set for release October 27. The band have debuted a new song from the record, called “Beach Boys.” And yes, it’s about the surf-rock icons, referencing “perfect four-part harmonies” and turning up the radio for inspiration. We also have a lyric video for “Beach Boys” which plays off of the album’s Southern California imagery, as well as the album’s lead track, “Mexican Fender”.
