Foo Fighters slapp i dag, ikke helt uventet, epen “Saint Cecilia EP“, bestående av låtene “Saint Cecilia“, “Sean“, “Savior Breath“, “Iron Rooster” og “The Neverending Sigh“. Bandet har i flere uker teaset oss med kryptiske bilder, lyder og snippets på foofighters.com og teoriene om hva som var i gjære har vært mange, og mange har gjettet at det nettopp kunne være en femspors EP.

Saint Cecilia EP” er tilgjengelig på Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes og vinyl, og den er tilgjengelig for gratis nedlasting i ønsket format (mp3, flac, wav) via www.saintceciliaep.com.

Foo Fighters valgte som veldig mange artister og band å avlyse siste del av europaturnén i kjølvannet av terroangrepet i Paris 13. november, hvor bl.a en konsert med Eagles of Death Metal på Bataclan ble angrepet av terrorister som tok livet av 89 mennesker. Totalt mistet 130 mennesker livet og næmere 370 ble såret i angrepene denne dagen.

Tonight, Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album. I felt the need to write this foreword in light of the heartbreaking tragedies of Nov. 13th, as this project has now taken on an entirely different tone. As has everything, it seems…

The Saint Cecilia EP was put into motion back in October of this year as a celebration of life and music. The concept being that, as our world tour drew to a close this week, we wanted to share our love of both with you in return for everything you have given us.

Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world. To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song. That much can never be taken away.

To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families. We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music. As it should be done. – Dave Grohl
