Dave Grohl’s Pre-Nirvana Band Reissuing Album

For those Dave Grohl completists out there (and you know who you are), you’ll want to check out this reissue from Scream, the band Grohl was in before joining Nirvana.

The reissue of Fumble, the group’s final studio release, is available at Dischord.com in two formats:  Digital and as a 12” clear LP.  Grohl even took to the Foo Fighters’ Facebook page to promote the album himself with the following message:

“Hey weirdos....once upon a time, when I was just a wee lad, I played drums in a punk rock band from the Washington DC area called SCREAM. I had grown up buying their records and going to see their live shows, and eventually had the honor of becoming their drummer at the age of 17. Fresh out of high school, I started touring the world with them from 1987-1990. The last album that we made together, FUMBLE, is now being reissued by the almighty Dischord Records

Check it out, it might just change your life. It sure changed mine.

Dave”

As for the aforementioned Foos, it seems like the band’s hiatus is still going strong, but considering how busy they were during the making and the tour cycle for Sonic Highways, they more than deserve some time away.
