It looks like the Foo Fighters have something up their sleeve for their Reading & Leeds set this coming weekend.
Frontman Dave Grohl sat down with NME to tease the possibility of playing new music during the band’s headlining set.
Foo Fighters are set to headline the festival for the fourth time this weekend, with fans eager to know more about the band’s set.
Speaking with NME, Grohl discusses the possibility of playing new tracks including one that “would fucking destroy.”
“There’s always something,” Grohl explains. “I’m constantly writing but not always seriously, then at some point they become a little more formed. When I feel like they’re ready, that’s when I bring them to the band.
“We’re not that far along in any kind of official process, but there’s always something. It’s happened before where we’ve written a song that afternoon and performed it. Never say never. There is one new song that would fucking destroy and I would love people to hear it. It’s written for a live performance, so we’ll see. I don’t know.”
The band plan on making their set a special one, but it looks like that’s going to be left as a surprise.
“At this point in our lifespan, there’s so much that we could do. We could bust out the same set that we played in 1995,” Grohl says.
“We could come out on stage with new songs, we could come out on stage and do a chronological history of the band, in reverse. It’s just a matter of figuring out how to do it. That’s usually something that we figure out on the afternoon of the show.”
Foo Fighters will headline Leeds on Friday, Aug. 23 and Reading on Sunday, Aug. 25.
