Foo Fighters bass player Nate Mendel is stepping into the lead singer role
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl rose to fame as the drummer for Nirvana, so it’s fitting that Foo Fighters bass player Nate Mendel is also stepping into the frontman role. Mendel is heading up a band called Lieutenant. The group will release its debut album, “If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going to Eat for a Week,” on March 10.
The first single off the album, “Believe the Squalor,” is currently streaming via Stereogum.
Lieutenant has Mendel singing lead vocals and playing guitar. The album also features a long list of guests, including Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett and members of Modest Mouse, Fleet Foxes, the Head and the Heart, Snow Patrol, Helmet and more.
