World-renowned photographer Paola Kudacki directs a dark and introspective vision for Foo Fighters' Shame Shame. 

Based on a recurring dream that has haunted vocalist Dave Grohl since he was 14, the concept follows the artist as he embarks on a mysterious quest to discover a burning coffin at the top of a hill. 

Shot in impressionistic black and white, the abstract video incorporates choreography, subtle visual effects and a typically high-energy performance from Grohl, who endlessly fights to release his burden of shame.

Sofia Boutella - best known for her work in The Mummy and Kingsman - represents this shame through dead weight on his shoulders, dragging him down as he tirelessly searches for answers. 

For a group with such an iconic and varied videography, this is a journey into a much darker territory, which mirrors the musical direction in their new album.
