[consequenceofsound.net] Foo Fighters have had one hell of a publicity push behind their new album Wasting Light, from old school music videos and a Record Store Day covers album to L.A. residencies and a semi-surprise show at South by Southwest. The band’s latest bit of hoopla is the release of a brand new documentary Foo Fighters: Back and Forth, which will screen in select movie theatres across the country on April 5th. Better yet, the James Moll-directed documentary will be followed by a live performance from the Foo Fighters where they’ll play Wasting Light in its entirety and in 3D.
The first batch of screening locations has been revealed and can be found HERE. If you missed it, the trailer is below.
In other news, Foo Fighters are confirmed to appear as musical guests on the April 9th episode of Saturday Night Live, reports MTV. The six-time SNL vets will be appearing alongside Helen Mirren, who we doubt will rival Jim Carrey’s awesomeness.
Wasting Light hits stores April 12th via RCA.
