The Foo Fighters were formed by Dave Grohl after Nivarna split when Kurt Cobain died of an overdose in 1994, since this time they have gon on to produce 7 albums and the last in 2010 with producer Butch Vig. The album was recorded in Dave Grohl’s garage using only analog equipment which then received the digital touch on post-mastering. Serviced City Pads.

New songs that i Tune fans can expect are the following – Wasting Light, Medium Rare so a real treat for the fans. The style of the Foo Fighters has been heavily influenced in Grohl’s song writing of Kurt Cobain, Grohl mentioned, ‘Through Kurt, I saw the beauty of minimalism and importance of music that’s stripped down. Foo Fighters also untilize the technique of shifting between quiet verses and loud choruses, which Grohl said was influenced by Nirvana. The feel of the Foo Fighters music  mix melodic elements with harder sounds, all the band members have a large range of music influences from Punk to Queen. i Tune fans can expect the Foo Fighters to braoden their range of music and influences through hard rock to nice melodies – the bands last acoustic tour was an attempt to broaden the groups sound.
