The Foo Fighters hardly want to keep a lid on their new effort: the band has posted a SoundCloud of “Wasting Light” in its entirety and you can stream it in full below.
Dave Grohl & Co. already released a slew of songs from the effort, due April 12, and have furthermore invited themselves into fans’ homes — or rather, their garages.
The Foos are playing in eight lucky fans’ garages starting on April 8 in select markets, below. Entrants to the contest were encouraged to write a short blurb as to why the Foo Fighters should set up shop in their home for a night. Winners will get to invite 50 of the friends, while rock radio stations will be giving away remaining tickets.
The contest is now closed but stay tuned for locations and tune in to the accompanying radio stations below for your chance at tickets.
Meanwhile, for those out of that pocket, there’s always checking out the band on the big screen. “Foo Fighters: Back and Forth,” the documentary that premiered at SXSW in March, will bow in dozens of cities in movie theaters, all on the same night all around the same time: April 5 at 9 p.m. EST. After that show’s over, another begins, as the band will perform the new album, well, front to back. In 3-D. Hollywood got to these guys in at least one regard…
