Foo Fighters Explain Wasting Light’s Primitive Recording Method

foo fighters small Foo Fighters Explain Wasting Light’s Primitive Recording MethodFoo Fighters have talked about the new creation process of their recently released album ‘Wasting Lights’ on multiple occasions but until now, they had not revealed the reason why they decided that a change was due. For their new album, the rock quintet opted to part ways with the high tech facilities of studios and went to record in a congested garage, where they had to record their music on outdated reel-to-reel tape machine instead of the state-of-the-art equipment that they are comfortable with. But according to the band frontman Dave Grohl, the whole move was initiated on purpose with a particular reason in mind. page go Foo Fighters Explain Wasting Light’s Primitive Recording Method Continue reading Foo Fighters Explain Wasting Light’s Primitive Recording Method »

Death Cab for Cutie Release Music Video for ‘Home Is a Fire’

home is a fire Death Cab for Cutie Release Music Video for Home Is a Fire The music video for Death Cab for Cutie’s ‘You Are a tourist’ had a very temporary feel to it. Shot as a live performance clip and released instantly for the fans as the official video, the clip didn’t turn out to be as memorable as the band wanted it to be. Hence, when they decided to make a video for their next song ‘Home Is a Fire,’ they were looking for something that would stick in viewers’ minds and that is exactly why they hired Shepard Fairey to assist them with their new clip.

30 Seconds to Mars Releases ‘This is War’ Video

30 seconds to mars group banner 30 Seconds to Mars Releases ‘This is War’ Video

More than twelve months after the filming, 30 Seconds to Mars has finally unveiled the music video for the song ‘This is War.’ The video was released earlier today (April 6) after the band became tired of answering constant questions regarding the suspicious delay of the video, which contains heavy doses of message as well as special effects.

The video opens up with a famous H.G. Wells quote, “If we don’t end war, war will end us.” The anti-war theme is set in the very beginning and therefore the end, in which all kinds of heavy war weapons (computer generated) are destroyed, seems very fitting to the whole concept. However, while the band makes sure that their anti-war and pro-peace message is heard by all and sundry, it remains confusing that why the group chose to wear US Army costumes in the video, as the American army is considered anything but anti-war in global circles.
