FOO FIGHTERS' TAYLOR HAWKINS To Release 'Kota' Mini-Album

With more than 20 years (and counting) on the FOO FIGHTERS drum throne and detours with the COATTAIL RIDERS and BIRDS OF SATAN, Taylor Hawkins reluctantly steps into the spotlight with his first-ever album released under his own name, “Kota”.

Whatever “Kota” means, the six-song mini-LP takes off like QUEEN on a skateboard, featuring Hawkins on lead vocals and nearly every instrument, with help from a few comrades in arms. From the hypnotic groove of opener “Range Rover Bitch” through the closing rave-up “I’ve Got Some Not Being Around You To Do Today”, “Kota” mixes Hawkins‘ chops and influences with a true-to-life cast of characters to create a meditation on life as a rock star stranded in the suburbs. It’s a short, sweet series of vignettes, but one that still strives to honor the tradition of BLUR‘s “Parklife” and THE KINKS“Are The Village Green Preservation Society”.

Pre-orders and first single “Range Rover Bitch” are available now at www.taylorhawkins.com.

“Kota” track listing:

01. Range Rover Bitch
02. Bob Quit His Job
03. Southern Belles
04. Rudy
05. Tokyo No No
06. I’ve Got Some Not Being Around You To Do Today

FOO FIGHTERS are currently on hiatus for probably the rest of 2016 after touring extensively last year.
