VIDEO: Foo Fighters debut new song Sunday Rain in Latvia

The Foo Fighters debuted the new song, “Sunday Rain”, during a June 21 performance at the Lucavsala festival in Riga, Latvia, and video from the event has surfaced online.

With drummer Taylor Hawkins handling lead vocals, it’s the latest preview of material that will appear on the band’s forthcoming album, “Concrete And Gold”, following the live debut of three new tracks at Iceland's Secret Solstice Festival last week - including the lead single, “Run”, “Lah Di Dah” and “The Sky Is A Neighbourhood.”

Due September 15, the group’s ninth release was co-produced by the group and Greg Kurstin (Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Sia) and mixed by Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead).

“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever,” says Dave Grohl. “To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”

The Foo Fighters are currently playing a series of summer festival dates across Europe.

The group will launch “Concrete And Gold” with a fall US tour that will begin with their own Cal Jam 17 festival at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, CA on October 7.

The group’s salute to the original 1970s California Jam festivals will see them joined by more than a dozen acts, including Queens Of The Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Royal Blood, Japandroids, Wolf Alice, Bob Mould, The Struts, Bully, Circa Waves, Babes in Toyland, Adia Victoria, Fireball Ministry, The Obsessed, Pinky Pinky, Starcrawler and White Reaper.

The Foos will follow the Cal Jam 17 event with a sold-out October 12 performance at the grand opening of the new Washington, DC venue, Anthem, before bringing their live show to arenas across the US, with dates scheduled into December.

A Capital One cardholders presale starts Monday, June 26 at 9am local time, with general public tickets on sale Thursday, June 29 at 10am local time.
