Hot on the heels of “No Son of Mine,” Foo Fighters unleash another dose of Medicine at Midnight in the form of “Waiting on a War.” In stark contrast to the bludgeoning “final f*ck you to 2020” (UPROXX) of its predecessor, “Waiting on a War” is a sprawling melodic opus that gradually builds to a patented FF rave-up.
If “Waiting on a War” seems to have an especially emotional heft to its lyrics, well, that’s because it does. Today is Foo frontman Dave Grohl’s birthday!

Primal and passionate, Badflower frontman Josh Katz transforms as he steps up to the microphone. The unmitigated kind of catharsis fueled by emotion and unfiltered intensity offers an awakening to the mind and body as audiences wholly experience the band’s palpable energy.
