Foo Fighters release poignant new video for Waiting On A War

Foo Fighters’ emotional new single Waiting On A War now has an equally powerful accompanying music video – watch it here.

Foo Fighters have shared an epic, cinematic and poignant new video for their latest single Waiting On A War.

The rock titans’ new promo perfectly matches the emotional – but ultimately hopeful – meaning behind the track, of which frontman Dave Grohl recently explained: Last fall, as I was driving my daughter to school, she turned to me and asked, Daddy, is there going to be a war?’ My heart sank as I realised that she was now living under the same dark cloud that I had felt 40 years ago. I wrote Waiting On A War that day.

Every day waiting for the sky to fall. 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.”

Watch the video for Waiting On A War below:

Waiting On A War follows Shame Shame and No Son Of Mine, and is taken from Foo Fighters’ upcoming 10th full-length Medicine At Midnight – due out on February 5 via Roswell Records/Columbia Records.

We started thinking about this album and writing it almost two years ago, and we recorded it in a way that we’d never done before; we didn’t sit in a room and rehearse and write these songs,” Dave told Kerrang! last year.​“They were all born from these demos that I had been doing where I had decided, Okay, it’s our 10th record, we’ve been a band for 25 years, what do we do? Do we make some sleepy acoustic album as we ride off into the sunset of our career, or do we make a fucking party record?’ And our love of rock bands that make these upbeat, up-tempo, almost danceable records inspired us to make the album that we did. To me, there’s songs on the record that are rooted in Sly & The Family Stone, or David Bowie, or The Power Station, and things like that. We sort of relied on a lot of these really energetic references and influences to put this one together – and we surprised ourselves.”
