Foo Fighters have released a new track titled “Soldier” as part of a series of digital tracks issued to benefit Planned Parenthood. An eventual vinyl version of the series, dubbed 7-Inches For Planned Parenthood, is in the works as well. The song itself is an outtake from the sessions for the band’s new LP, Concrete And Gold.

Concrete And Gold debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 album chart last month, selling 127,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release.

The band’s fall North American tour kicked off earlier this month in San Bernardino, California with Cal Jam 17, a daylong festival featuring the Foos headlining a bill that included Queens Of The Stone AgeRoyal BloodCage The Elephant and more.

The Foos next play on Friday night (October 20th) in Cincinnati.

Earlier this week, Foo Fighters invited University of South Carolina student Pierce Edge to play drums with the band. Edge held a sign during the concert that read: “Drums on ‘Under Pressure’?” Dave Grohl brought Edge onstage, joking, “Don’t s**t the bed in front of your hometown, brother.” The band then let him loose on the drums, and Edge launched into a tight rendition of Queen’s 1981 classic. Watch Edge perform with the Foos below (Spin):
