Foo Fighters have launched into the new year with “No Son of Mine,” the second track from their forthcoming “party album”, Medicine at Midnight.
On “No Son of Mine,” the group return to their fuzzy rock roots without entirely shying away from the sound of its groove-laden pop predecessor, “Shame Shame.” Channeling the urgency of Motörhead’s classic “Ace of Spades,” Dave Grohl and co have crafted yet another timeless rock track that is sure to fuel mosh pits on their eventual world tour.
Medicine at Midnight will be the Foos’ tenth studio album. Rather than pushing out another rock LP similar to their last studio album, 2017’s Concrete and Gold, the band chose to innovate and craft what they have described as a “party album.”
“A lot of our favorite records have these big grooves and riffs,” Grohl told NME in November. “I hate to call [Medicine at Midnight] a funk or dance record, but it’s more energetic in a lot of ways than anything we’ve ever done and it was really designed to be that Saturday night party album. It was written and sequenced in a way that you put on, and nine songs later you’ll just put it on again.”
Medicine at Midnight will arrive on February 5. Listen to “No Son of Mine” here:
