The Foos' new single ushers in a trippy astronomical video, along with a very cool viewing experience...

The follow-up to epic OAP-themed rocker 'Run', Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has once more placed himself both in front of and behind the camera, to direct a Stranger Things-tinged video.

'The Sky Is A Neighborhood' sees the Foos positioned on top of a small manger-like building, in which Dave's daughters Harper and Violet are seen reading a book of lyrics to the song.

They are soon alerted to the presence of the band, "banging on the ceiling", and as Dave, Taylor, Chris, Pat, Nate and Rami dislodge more of the roof above them, things gradually get more trippy...

Watch the video below:


In keeping with the unveiling of their last video, the Foos have also revealed some fancy new features on their website.

Visitors to foofighters.com are now greeted with a slowly shifting night sky, with a central constellation coalescing to form the Foos' logo.

The highlight, however, is found under the 'Constellations' menu, where mobile users are taken to sky.foofighters.com.

If location is enabled on your phone, you'll then be able to rotate your screen to observe where famous constellations are, relative to you!

Not only that, but some tiny little Foo Fighters pound out 'The Sky Is A Neighborhood' on the bottom of your screen! Very cool!

The band first unveiled the full version of 'The Sky...' at an Icelandic festival back in June 2017. On that occasion, Harper Grohl made her Foo Fighters debut by playing drums for a cover of 'We Will Rock You'.

Not too bad for an 8 year old, in front of 20,000 people!
