Taylor Hawkins And The Coattail Riders Announce April 20th Relase Date of Red Light Fever

Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and his Coattail Riders have announced an April 20 release of their new album “Red Light Fever”.

Hawkins began demoing tracks on his own when an early 2009 break from the Foo Fighters’  touring schedule finally freed up the time. According to Hawkins, who provides drums and vocals on all tracks among other additional instrumentation, “About halfway through, I just said f**k it, I don’t care if the record ends up sounding like me having sex with my record collection. I’m just going to have fun with it.”

The record soon went from a home recording project like the Coattail Riders’ 2006 debut (which was  recorded in Foo Fighters touring percussionist Drew Hester’s living room) to  full on sessions at the Foo Fighters’ state of the art 606 studio complex. Hawkins was joined by returning Coattail Riders Chris Chaney (bass) and Gannin Arnold (guitar) and, for the first time in the studio, touring Coattails guitarist Nate Wood. As the record’s dozen songs were fleshed out, so too was  its stellar supporting cast, which would eventually come to include Elliot Easton of the Cars, Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen, and last but by no  means least, Hawkins’ bandmate Dave Grohl.

Red Light Fever could be considered a labor of love – if the sheer joy exuded in every note, influence and nuance of every song didn’t make the entire affair seem so effortless. Hawkins’ increasingly accomplished vocals and world renowned drumming skills  recall and pay tribute to Hawkins’ vast spectrum of classic rock heroes – from the vintage 70s glam stomp of “Way Down,” the hard rock rave up “Not Bad  Luck,” a nod to Beatlesque balladry in the form of “Hell To Pay,” and many more. Virtually every track evokes memories of the respective heydays of the Chinn-Chapman hit factory, The Move, Sweet, and even a little 10cc for good measure – all imbued with Hawkins’ unmistakable musical personality.
