Foo Fighters stream new song Waiting On A War

he Foo Fighters are streaming a new song, “Waiting On A War”, as the latest preview to their forthcoming album “Medicine At Midnight.”

“As a child growing up in the suburbs of Washington DC, I was always afraid of war,” says Dave Grohl. “I had nightmares of missiles in the sky and soldiers in my backyard, most likely brought upon by the political tension of the early 1980’s and my proximity to the Nation’s Capitol. My youth was spent under the dark cloud of a hopeless future.

“Last fall, as I was driving my 11 year old daughter to school, she turned to me and asked, ‘Daddy, is there going to be a war?’ My heart sank in my chest as I looked into her innocent eyes, because I realized that she was now living under that same dark cloud of a hopeless future that I had felt 40 years ago. I wrote “Waiting On a War” that day.

“Everyday waiting for the sky to fall,”
he adds. “Is there more to this than that? Is there more to this than just waiting on a war? Because I need more. We all do. This song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, just as every child does.”

“Waiting On A War” follows “Shame Shame” and “No Son Of Mine” as the third track issued in advance of the February 5 release of the band’s 10th studio record.

The Foo Fighters are scheduled to perform on ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, January 14.
