Foo Fighters release thrash song 'March of the Insane'

Foo Fighters have revealed a new thrash song 'March of the Insane' under the name of the group 'Dream Widow'. The song is from their upcoming comedy-horror movie Studio 666.

In the song Grohl screams out "Sing in a villainous choir. Join in a chorus of pain. Rise in a ruinous army. Dance to the march of the insane," In the chorus of the song.

On an episode of The Howard Stern Show, Grohl explains "The premise of the movie is that we move into this house. I have writer's block. I'm totally uninspired, I can't come up with anything," He adds "And I wind up finding this creepy basement. And I go into the basement, I find this tape by a band from 25 years ago that recorded there. And there's this song that. If recorded and completed, the fucking demon in the house is unleashed, and then, whatever, all hell breaks loose."

"We come in 25 years later to record, having no idea what happened 25 years ago. I start becoming possessed by the spirit of the guy from 25 years ago and the spirit of the house," explains Grohl. "But this song, 'March of the Insane,' this is their lost record. This is the record they were making before their singer murdered [them]."

The frontman explains why no songs feature from the Foo Fighters album 'Medicine at Midnight' which was recorded in the same mansion the movie was set. "Originally, they were going to come out at the same time," he tells Stern. "And so this is why we were telling everybody. 'Yeah, we just finished making a record in this haunted house, it was fucking crazy. We heard voices in the Pro Tools recording thing. We'd come back, chairs were moving. We'd set up cameras, and we saw these things.' We were basically saying all of that so the day the record came out, we'd also drop this horror film. But the timing got all fucked up by the pandemic."

In an interview with Deadline Dave spoke about how the band reacted to the movie. How in it he's going to kill em all "The premise of the movie evolved. It didn’t begin with me murdering everyone and going solo. It began as a story of Foo Fighters trying to find somewhere to make a record, winding up in a house that’s possessed by some ungodly demon. Then it just it ballooned into something that we never imagined, which was an actual full-length feature horror film. Most everything we do is on a whim and we don’t put too much thought into anything, but the music. We felt comfortable making this film because of the videos we had made before, which had all come from random dreams, ridiculous bus chatter or backstage riffing.
