Set for an Australian release on Friday June 10th is the critically acclaimed documentary, FOO FIGHTERS – BACK AND FORTH. A true chronicling of the triumphs and tragedies of the band’s 16 year history, BACK AND FORTH chronicles FOO FIGHTERS’ entire existence: from Dave Grohl’s cassette demos to the band forming to play those songs to their ascent to becoming one of the biggest rock bands on the planet–and every Grammy® win and sold out show along the way. FOO FIGHTERS –  BACK AND FORTH features Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear recalling every stage of the band’s existence more candidly and intimately than ever before- -culminating in a behind the scenes look at the direct-to-analog tape sessions in Grohl’s garage that produced the new album, WASTING LIGHT.

Released on April 8th, WASTING LIGHT debuted #1 in Australia and 11 other countries – the biggest worldwide chart week of the band’s 16-year-and-going-strong-career. The album was recorded entirely in Dave Grohl’s home garage using only analogue equipment. Produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder,WASTING LIGHT’s no computers/no software back to basics approach has resulted in arguably the strongest and most cohesive effort of the band’s storied career. From the hit single Rope to the frenetic opener Bridge Burning to the beautifully bipolar These Days to stunning guest spots from Bob Mould (Dear Rosemary) and Krist Novoselic (I Should Have Known), WASTING LIGHT is a singular triumph: a band that’s headlined arenas, stadiums and festivals the world over stripping itself down to the bare essentials and coming up with its finest hour.
