The Foos gave ‘Shame Shame’ its live TV debut on Saturday Night Live earlier this month, and followed that performance up yesterday with a storming appearance on Colbert’s late-night US chat show.

Speaking to NME earlier this month, Grohl said that his band wanted to do something that “sounded fresh” with ‘Medicine At Midnight’ to mark both their 10th record together and the band’s 25th anniversary.
“We’ve made some many different types of album, we’ve done acoustic things, we’ve done punk-rock things, mid-tempo Americana type of things,” he said. “We have a lot of albums to fall back on, so you just have to go with our gut feeling and I thought instead of making some mellow adult album, I thought: ‘Fuck that, let’s make a party album’.”
In another recent interview, Grohl said that most of the songs on their forthcoming new LP were written “to be played in stadiums — these big grooves, big choruses, big guitars”.
“It was really sort of designed to be this big party album,” he added.
