    Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and his band The Coattail Riders have debuted their new single, “Crossed the Line,” featuring fellow bandmate Dave Grohl and Jon Davison of Yes.

    The song features the tenacity of the hardest-hitting Foo’s songs with a firm ’70s synth twist. From slow-burning verses to the breakneck choruses, there isn’t a dull moment to be had. “But you crossed the line, now you’ve got to go / Been a long time since you rock ’n’ rolled / Now it’s hard to save you, I’m sorry to say / But you crossed the line, now you’ve got to go,” Hawkins sings.

    “Crossed the Line” is the first taste of Hawkins’ forthcoming album, Get the Money. Besides Grohl and Davison, the record will also include contributions from Foo Fighters bandmate Pat Smear, Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde and Queen drummer Roger Taylor. The LP arrives November 8 via Shanabelle/RCA Records.
