Foo Fighters open up the archives to dish up rare live recordings.

You just knew that a band like the Foo Fighters has all kinds of stuff in the vault: demos, alternate takes, live shows. Well, starting now, the band will release some of this material as part of a project they call the Foo Files.

The first thing to emerge is 00950025, which features three live tracks: two from the Reading Festival in 1995 (the year the Foos formed) and one from a performance in Melbourne, Australia, in 2000.

There’s more, too. The Foos are looking for fans to tell their favourite Foo-related story. If you’ve got something to submit, go here. With next year being the band’s 25th anniversary, you know that they’re working on something big.
