If you happen to notice a band called The Holy Shits will be performing at a venue near you, you might want to go because there’s a chance that it might be the Foo Fighters performing under an alias.
That’s exactly what happened this past weekend to audience members who headed out to see the band without really knowing what to expect.
Over the past couple of weeks, rumors had been circulating that the Foo Fighters, by their actual name, would be performing some super secret shows in London. The rumors were confirmed to be true when The Holy Shits revealed themselves.
During one of their stop at London’s Islington Assembly Hall, the band treated fans to an instrumental version of a never-before-heard track which turned out to be one of their new songs, “Outside.” The song was weaved into a rendition of 2007’s “The Pretender.”
Fan shot video from the show (and of the song) can been seen below.
“Outside” will be featured on the Foo Fighters’ upcoming eighth album, Sonic Highways due out Nov. 10. Sonic Highways will feature eight tracks which were recorded at eight different studios in eight different cities around the United States. Sonic Highways is also the name of the band’s eight-part documentary for HBO which chronicles the filming of the new record.
