The second visual from 'Medicine At Midnight' is here.



After releasing the song last week. Foo Fighters have now dropped a video for their track 'Waiting On A War'. 

Inspired by a conversation that vocalist Dave Grohl had with his daughter, the song is a slow-burning build about wanting more from this life than just waiting for it all to end. 

The video personifies that feeling with youthful exuberance and inspiring imagery. 

Here's what Dave had to say exactly about the track:

"Last fall, as I was driving my daughter to school, she turned to me and asked, “Daddy, is there going to be a war?” My heart sank as I realized that she was now living under the same dark cloud that I had felt 40 years ago. "
 
I wrote “Waiting on a War” that day.
 
Everyday waiting for the sky to fall. Is there more to this than that? Is there more to this than just waiting on a war? Because I need more. We all do. 
 
This song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, just as every child does."


And here we go:



The track is taken from the band's upcoming album 'Medicine At Midnight', which is set for release on February 05. 

It will also feature 'No Son Of Mine':



And 'Shame Shame':



The band also recently released a sentimental documentary focusing on their 25 years as a band. Catch up with that here:
