Foo Fighters Stream ‘Songs From the Laundry Room’ EP
Congrats to those of you who took part in Record Store Day this weekend, and especially to those who were able to score Foo Fighters' Songs From the Laundry Room EP as one of the specialty releases. But as Record Store Day features primarily limited releases, we know not everyone may have been so lucky. Thankfully, Foo Fighters have offered a second chance for those who missed out.
The Songs From the Laundry Room EP is now streaming online after the Saturday (April 18) Record Store Day release. The four-song collection includes early demo versions of the songs "Alone + Easy Target" and "Big Me," a raucous cover of the Kim Wilde '80s favorite "Kids in America" and the driving EP closer "Empty Handed."
Dave Grohl took full advantage of his role as Record Store Day Ambassador this year. He sang the praises of Metallica and their No Life 'Til Leather cassette offering, set up an in-store performance at a Record Connection in Niles, Ohio, and dug into the vaults for the Songs From the Laundry Room EP.
As for that Ohio record store performance, it went off well with the band leaning on some of the heavier songs in their catalog. The group also played three of the Songs for the Laundry Room tracks in a row, as "Big Me," "Alone + Easy Target" and "Kids in America" set the stage for the show closer "Everlong."
Foo Fighters will be playing in much larger venues for the majority of the year. After a Hangout Festival headlining spot next month, the group will head to the U.K. and Europe for a tour before returning stateside in July for the launch of a North American trek. Dates can be found here.
