Happy Foo Year! Foo Fighters reveal new track ‘No Son Of Mine’…

1st January 2021 0 By John Deaux

Foo Fighters are ringing in 2021—literally—with the ear-ringing new “No Son of Mine.”  The second track to be revealed from the band’s forthcoming 10th album Medicine at Midnight (out February 5th on Roswell Records/Columbia Records), “No Son of Mine” is now available to stream or download, or as an instant grat track with pre-orders placed at foofighters.co/MAM

“No Son of Mine” ignites the second half of Medicine at Midnight with a lightning strike of a riFF that builds into the album’s most full-on barnstormer. Replete with nods to familiar FF influences from Queen’s “Stone Cold Crazy” to Ace of Spades/Iron Fist-era Motörhead to Metallica’s Kill ‘Em All, “No Son of Mine” features a streamlined, minimalist chassis of searing Grohl, Smear and Shiflett licks atop a steel-trap-tight Hawkins/Mendel rhythmic frame.

“This is the kind of song that just resides in all of us and if it makes sense at the time, we let it out,” Grohl explains, adding, “Lyrically it’s meant to poke at the hypocrisy of self righteous leaders, people that are guilty of committing the crimes they’re supposedly against…”

Medicine at Midnight is produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, engineered by Darrell Thorp and mixed by Mark “Spike” Stent, and packs the following nine songs into a tight-ass 37 minutes:

      Making a Fire
      Shame Shame
      Waiting on a War
      Medicine at Midnight
      No Son of Mine
      Holding Poison
      Chasing Birds
      Love Dies Young

Foo Fighters are Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, and Rami Jaffee.
