DROP EVERYTHING AND JAM: Foo Fighters Release Third ‘Sonic Highways’ Song

foo fighters

Fall 2014 is shaping up to forever be known as the season of Foo. The all-American rock ‘n’ roll band dropped the third track off of their upcoming LP, Sonic Highways, this evening. The track, “Congregation,” is a full on Foo track — containing the gnarly energy and light-hearted melodies that have been stealing our hearts for years on end.

The song drops the evening before the third edition of the band’s HBO Original Series, Sonic Highways. In the show the band travels to different American cities and attempts to capture the musical history and aesthetic of the city through an original song. The band traveled to eight cities for the Sonic Highways record and television show. “Congregation,” a glorified rock number with a bit of a country twang, represents Nashville. The song features Nashville native Zac Brown and was recorded at Nashville’s Southern Ground Studio.

The band previously released “Something From Nothing,” an ode to Chicago, and “The Feast and the Famine,” a gritty number encompassing Washington D.C.

Sonic Highways, the band’s eighth LP, is due out Nov. 10 on Roswell Records. Follow the jump to hear the song and see the full track listing for Sonic Highways.
