Foo Fighters have rolled out yet another new song from the upcoming Concrete And Gold album in Europe.
The group played “Arrows” during its recent concert in Athens, Greece — the final show of its European tour — adding to a new song list that includes “Run,” “La Dee Da,” “Sunday Rain,” “Dirty Water” and “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” during the run.
The group has dates in Asia and Europe during August, with a North American tour kicking off October 7 at Cal Jam in San Bernardino, Calif.
…Meanwhile, former Foo Fighters drummer William Goldsmith has lashed out at Grohl via a new interview with The Daily Mail in England.
Goodsmith was with the Foos from 1995-97 and left after learning Grohl had re-recorded all his drum parts on the group’s second album, The Colour And The Shape.
Goldsmith says he still holds a grudge, feeling creatively “raped” and particularly angry when Grohl asked him to stay with the band and tour to support the album:
“The way things were handled, and what was done to me, I do think staying in that band would have made me feel like my soul was destroyed and I would have likely ended up dead.”
Goldsmith says he hasn’t seen Grohl since a 2002 festival where both were playing, and he says the Foos frontman “was a bit like the kid who is popular but is mean and everybody likes them.”
