Foo Fighters are digging into their past with an archival series of releases dubbed the “Foo Files” with a new live EP.
The three-song release is called 00950025 and contains some “elusive live tracks.”
The EP pulls together performances of “For All the Cows” and B-side “Wattershed” from the band’s 1995 headlining performance at Reading Festival. The third recording is of “Next Year” from a concert in Melbourne, Australia in 2000.
The new release seems to be a part of a new archival series the band are planning. In a tweet showing the release, the band wrote “A good day to take a look in the Foo Files. How about a few elusive Live tracks?…you never know what we’ve got up our sleeves…”
