The first major league rock band to release new music in 2021, Foo Fighters struck gold with their new album Medicine At Midnight: the band’s tenth studio set, MAM debuted at number on album charts in the UK, Australia, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Belgium, Austria and Switzerland, as well as smashing into the US Billboard 200 chart at number 3. Not a bad way to kick off a new year.
As a little thank you from the Foo Fighters’ camp, bandleader Dave Grohl has kindly taken the time to talk us through the origin stories of every song on the nine-track Medicine At Midnight, from punchy opener Making A Fire through to the emotional set closer Love Dies Young.
“I remember after we recorded Making A Fire, I was, like, Oh, fuck yes, we are on to some shit that we’ve never done before,” recalls Grohl.
Here’s how the album unfolded, in the words of Grohl, Foos guitarist Pat Smear and keyboard player Rami Jaffee.
