The Birds of Satan, the side-project of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, will let loose its self-titled debut album on April 15th through Shanabelle Records. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in its entirety below.

Comprised of Hawkins, Mick Murphy and Wiley Hodgen, of Hawkins' Chevy Metal cover band, the Birds of Satan marks the trio's first official release since launching earlier this year. The album was recorded over the course of one week at Dave Grohl's Studio 606 in California and boasts appearances by Grohl, fellow Foo Pat Smear, Butch Vig and Yes frontman Jon Davison.

"[The Birds of Satan] is just all real old school rock with all sorts of little flares and touches," Hawkins recently told Billboard (via Consequence of Sound). "It's like a love letter to the music I love, a nod to everything, a homage sometimes. You'll hear the (Rolling) Stones song that we learned last week and the Move song, or you'll hear the Van Halen song or the James Gang song or whatever, but in our own songs."

    I just wanted to point out that as of 2:23pm this afternoon, The Ballad of the Birds of Satan has been played 16,666 times.
    I love this album. rhythm is used as a melody, and I think the singing is pretty damn awesome.
