[Listen] Foo Fighters - "Miss The Misery" (Preview Clip)

 

With every passing day, Dave Grohl and his Foos string me along with little tidbits of info from the studio, play shows in cities I don't live in where people shoot video of new songs, and give Zane Lowe teaser clips like this one of "Miss The Misery" (below), all in anticipation of the grand unveiling of their upcoming album of analog awesomeness. While no official release date has been announced as of yet, one thing's for certain: EVERYONE ON THE SKOA STAFF IS DROOLING WITH ANTICIPATION. 

Do you love this or what!?!?

UPDATE: Apparently we should be expecting something in April as seen from the image above from FooFighters.fm!!! If you want to hear this clip on loop forever and ever, tune into 101.5 on FooFighters.fm! There are also fun little clips if you scan along the tuner. Very cool. We'll be keeping an eye on this for you to see if anything else comes up. 

UPDATE#2: Well that was fast, if you sneakily navigate to the Foo Fighters website (which now redirects to FooFighters.fm so you have to do a workaround), you'll see that they have officially announced that their new album is going to drop on April 12th, 2011. Holler!

Hat tip to @DevilForHire for the help acquiring release date confirmation!

[Watch] R.E.M. - "Mine Smell Like Honey" (Video)

As CoS points out we've had plenty of lyrics videos from R.E.M. in recent months but for all the song previews we've had we were yet to have any official visuals from the band. Just ast week we had a track titled  "Überlin" accompanied with map/tube like graphics. Yesterday however the band unveiled the first in what could be a long line of videos, a clip for their new bands first single, “Mine Smell Like Honey”. The video was directed by Dominic DeJoseph, who also handled clips for R.E.M.’s “Bittersweet Me” and “New Test Leper” in the past, so they're more than familier with his work. Bassist Mike Mills said the video is “a reference to the old Buster Keaton silent film kind of days of pratfalls and just watching people look like they’re getting hurt when they’re really not.” 

So finally soak in the first full video (that's not just lyrics flying around the screen) from R.E.M. in build up to the release of their album Collapse Into Now which you can pre-order over here.

[Listen] Hear 2 New Beady Eye B-Sides "Sons Of The Stage" x "World Outside My Room" 

By now, you may be aware that Oasis that Manchester band that were once HUGE have come to an end. If you didn't, sorry to break it to you 2 years late. However, the band is pretty much still going, just minus Noel Gallagher under the name of Beady Eye. You can check out two B-Sides from the boys below from the boys. Firstly we have a cover in the form of "Sons Of The Stage" from the band World of Twist. Secondly you can hear "World Outside My Room". Both of the tracks have Liam's swagger thrown in for good measure and the sound of them both is retro. Not that you'd expect anythign else from these guys at this point. In relation to the cover Liam recalls when he saw the band in Manchester:

"World of Twist were a top band. I remember going to see them at the Ritz. I was buzzing, what was girl called? Shells or something, the Edge or Adge on the piano, top band man I remembered him Tony when we used to rehearse at the Boardwalk in Oasis. He used to come in to our room, I think he used to rehearse there and he would glide along the wall as if in a spy movie, close the door and slide around the wall like we wouldn’t noticed him and I would carry on singing and he would go along the wall, bend down and pick up something and then glide back along wall and out the door- and I would think, why don’t you walk past us and get what you wanted (laughs) . Top band . Top band. What a dude.’ "

Check out his homage to World of Twist below along with "World Outside My Window" and look out for the release of their debut Different Gear, Still Speeding which is penned for a February 28th release date. They also just announced a handful of UK tour dates if you want to check them out on the road.
