Feb. 25 will see the release of Studio 666, a new horror/comedy film from and starring the Foo Fighters.

While little is publicly known about the film beyond a few wild clips and the movie’s official trailer, it’s apparent that the movie will has a decidedly sinister angle and tone — and this week, Dave Grohl and the guys shared a song from the movie.

Well, maybe not “Dave Grohl and the guys” as you’ve come to know them. Rather, “March of the Insane” is presented as coming from a band called Dream Widow, and the song’s description includes the line “from their never-released debut album.”

It’s loud, thrashy and aggressive:

So what’s this all about? You’ll have to wait until Studio 666 hits theaters to find out. But here’s the movie’s official trailer, which may shed a bit more light on the mystery surrounding this Dream Widow band:

Here’s its official synopsis:

In STUDIO 666, the legendary rock band Foo Fighters move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll history to record their much anticipated 10th album. Once in the house, Dave Grohl finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band.

Grohl expanded more in a statement:

“After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous music documentaries under our collective belts, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A full length feature horror comedy film. Like most things Foo, STUDIO 666 began with a far fetched idea that blossomed into something bigger than we ever imagined possible. Filmed at the same house where we recorded our latest album “Medicine at Midnight” (told you that place was haunted!) we wanted to recapture the classic magic that all of our favorite rock and roll movies had, but with a twist: hilarious gore that fucking ROCKS. And now, with the help of Tom Ortenberg and the team at Open Road Films we can finally let this cat out of the bag after keeping it our best kept secret for two years. Be ready to laugh, scream, and headbang in your popcorn. STUDIO 666 will fuck you up.”

Said director BJ McDonnell:

“STUDIO 666 is a perfect combination of all things I love. Rock, horror, and comedy all tied together in a very thrilling motion picture. I am so excited to have teamed up with the Foo Fighters to create an old school “Band” movie. It’s been years since we’ve seen something like the Beatles “Help!”, The Monkees “Head”, or “KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park”. Take that 60’s / 70’s old school band film fun, mix it with horror and STUDIO 666 is born! I am so ecstatic for audiences of film and music to come together and enjoy our film.”
