When Dave Grohl promised the Foo Fighters’ latest album would be heavy, he wasn’t kidding. The just-leaked “Bridge Burning” is the most ear-pummeling cut from the alt-rock band’s exceptional April 12 release, Wasting Light.
The song — teased online in January — is a “three-guitar riff bomb” and “brandishes real heavy-metal muscle,” SPIN contributor Mikael Wood writes in the LP’s nine-out-of-10 review. Grohl lets out a hair-raising battle scream: “These are my famous last words!”.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the alt-rock gun show!
Listen to “Bridge Burning” via Seattle’s 107.7 The End.
