[Live] Foo Fighters - Arlandria

American band reveals video of another single from the album "Light Wasting".
The music video was filmed live during the band's participation in Dave Grohl iTunes Festival in London earlier this year.

Foo Fighters are an American rock band formed by singer/guitarist Dave Grohl in 1995 in Seattle, USA. Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums) (both of Sunny Day Real Estate and The Fire Theft), and Pat Smear (guitar) to complete the group. Goldsmith left during the recording of the group’s second album The Colour And The Shape (1997), soon followed by Smear. They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl left prior to the recording of the group’s third album, There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999).

Chris Shiflett joined as the band’s second guitarist after the completion of There Is Nothing Left To Lose. The band released its fourth album One By One in 2002. The group followed that release with the two-disc In Your Honor (2005), which was split between acoustic songs and harder-rocking material. Foo Fighters released its sixth album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007. Over the course of the band’s career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys. The band’s seventh album Wasting Light was released in 2011 and peaked at #1 in several countries.
