Saint Cecilia is an EP by American rock band Foo Fighters, released in February 2016 via RCA Records.

Released as a surprise for fans in November 2015, the 5 track Saint Cecilia EP makes its way to Limited Edition Vinyl.

Saint Cecilia was recorded at the Saint Cecilia Hotel in Austin, Texas, while the band were on the last leg of their Sonic Highways tour in the US.

The band decided to dedicate the release to the victims of the Paris massacre, which also led to the band cancelling their remaining tour dates in Europe.

In an open letter, Dave Grohl released the following statement:

  • “Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album.  I felt the need to write this foreword in light of the heartbreaking tragedies of Nov. 13th, as this project has now taken on an entirely different tone.  As has everything, it seems...
  • The Saint Cecilia EP was put into motion back in October of this year as a celebration of life and music.  The concept being that, as our world tour drew to a close this week, we wanted to share our love of both with you in return for everything you have given us.
  • Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world.  To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song.  That much can never be taken away.
  • To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families.  We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music.  As it should be done.  Dave Grohl”

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic described "Saint Cecilia" as Foo Fighters' "statement on how they are the biggest rock band in the world". 

The EP garnered very positive reviews upon release from music critics who cited the songs as a return to basic rock and roll.

"Saint Cecilia" is the Foo Fighters' twenty-second song to make to the Top 10 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

The Vinyl EP topped the UK Vinyl Chart and reached #2 on the US Vinyl Chart.

This Limited Edition 12" EP is on 180 Gram Vinyl at 33⅓ RPM, pressed in the U.S.
