Last week we revealed a preview of "Rope," the new video from Foo Fighters, off their upcoming Wasting Light album. Well, we felt bad dangling the carrot in front of you and not delivering, so to make up for it, we've got the premiere of "Rope" in its entirety right here.
Trapped in a giant cube, the Foo Fighters don all-black gear while numerous handheld cameras track their every move. (The entire video is shot in VHS, by the way, which is why it has that awesome '80s, DIY patina.) What you missed in the "Rope" preview, though, is frontman Dave Grohl's shredding solo on the Flying V, and the seizure-inducing cube coughing up an electric rainbow of color.
It's pretty minimalist as Foo videos go, but as Dave Grohl, who also directed the video, told MTV News, it wasn't without work. "We shot the video... in a big soundstage in Los Angeles," Grohl says. "And we had to build this cube out of fabric and wood for the band to play within, and it's lit from outside."
Wasting Light, the group's seventh album and first since 2007's Echoes, Silence Patience & Grace, comes out April 11. But before you check that out, don't miss the Foo Fighters' live performance at the 2011 mtvU Woodie Awards on Wednesday, March 16, at midnight ET on MTV, MTV2 and mtvU.
