Their first official video clip was of the first song off the album, titled "Louise" witch is also todays tune. Taylor Hawkins have a new album in the pipeline, named Red Light Fever is to be released on April 19. It features some nice set up of supporting cast, which would eventually come to include Elliot Easton of the Cars, Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen, and last but by no means least, Hawkins' bandmate Dave Grohl.

It's a album that im looking forward to hear as the first one is very interesting rock album and the small sound clips that they have released on their website sounds promising.
