We Are The Ocean in Foo Fighters tribute

We Are The Ocean have issued a promo of their take on Foo Fighters’ track The Pretender.

They posted it on their YouTube channel along with a get well message to Foo Fighters’ leader Dave Grohl, who broke his leg onstage in Sweden earlier this month forcing the band to cancel the remainder of their European tour.

They say: “With Dave Grohl out of action, we thought we’d drop this Foo Fighters classic on you. Get well soon Dave.”

We Are The Ocean announced a 10-date UK winter tour last week which will follow their live dates this summer. The shows are in support of fourth album Ark which was released in May via BMG Chrysalis.
