The Foo Fighters Are Rebellious Senior Citizens In The New Dave Grohl-Directed ‘Run’ Video

It’s been three years since the Foo Fighters released an album — though 2015 saw them release an EP — and it looks like they’re fixing to change that very soon. Today, the Seattle group shared a new video for “Run,” a thrashing new song that features a bunch of senior citizens going wild and rebelling against a questionable group of orderlies and staff. Eventually, a full-on brawl breaks out between the patients and the nurses, as the song’s mood swells considerably darker and harder. The clip was directed by the group’s frontman Dave Grohl himself, and seeing all the band members dressed up as ancient versions of themselves is well worth a look. Watch it above.

Following the release of their 2014 album Sonic Highways, the Foo Fighters faced their fair share of up and downs, most notably, when frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg during a show in support of the 2015 tour of the album. Instead of quitting or resting, however, the band soldiered on — even on that same night — eventually dubbing that stint the Broken Leg Tour, and sharing x-rays of the nasty incident. Grohl even began performing on the infamous throne, and though the band had to cancel a few tour dates, they kept touring.

Shortly after, Grohl announced in 2015 the band would be on hiatus, but that seems to have been short lived. They’ve already announced that they’re headlining Glastonbury Festival this year, and the above clip makes it seem like they’re going to have plenty of new material for that set. Stay tuned for more.
