Foo Fighters’ (and Sunny Day Real Estate) Bassist With a New Band

Nate Mendel, the melodic low-end guy for that band called Foo Fighters AND founding member of emo-grandfathers Sunny Day Real Estate, is releasing new material with a new band called Lieutenant.

The debut album titled If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going to Eat for a Week is set to release on Dine Alone records on March 10th and features Mendel on vocals… a change from the quiet microphone-less position on the Foo Fighters stage.

According to Stereogum, the body of work features contributions from notable figures: Page Hamilton of Helmet, Joe Plumber of Modest Mouse, Josiah Johnson of Head and the Heart, Foo-bandmate Chris Shiflett, and yep… songwriter Jeremy Enigk of Sunny Day Real Estate.

Needless to say, we’re just a tad excited. March 2015 will be a good one (Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds will also be releasing Chasing Yesterday, which sounds fantastic so far).

Here’s the album tracklist, and also have a listen to Lieutenant’s beautiful “Believe the Squalor” here.

01 “Belle Epoque”
02 “The Place You Wanna Go”
03 “Believe The Squalor”
04 “Rattled”
05 “Prepared Remarks”
06 “Some Remove”
07 “Sink Sand”
08 “Artificial Limbs”
09 “Lift The Sheet”
