Foo Fighters Set to Rock the "2011 MTV Movie Awards" Stage with Next Single "Walk"

Jason Sudeikis Hosts the 20th Annual "2011 MTV Movie Awards" LIVE on Sunday, June 5 at 9pm ET/8pm CT

NEW YORK, NY (May 20, 2011) - MTV today announced that the Foo Fighters will rock the "2011 MTV Movie Awards" stage for the first time since 2005, debuting their next single, "Walk," off their seventh studio album "Wasting Light." Known for their epic live performances, Foo Fighters will join hip-hop artists Lupe Fiasco and Trey Songz as the musical acts featured in this year's live show, along with previously announced presenters Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Emma Stone, Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey, Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy. Hosted by Jason Sudeikis, the "2011 MTV Movie Awards" will broadcast LIVE from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA on Sunday, June 5 at 9pm ET/8pm CT.

Released on April 12, "Wasting Light" debuted #1 in 12 countries - the biggest worldwide chart week of the band's 16-year-and-going-strong-career. The album was recorded entirely in Dave Grohl's home garage using only analogue equipment. Produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder, "Wasting Light's" no computers/no software back to basics approach has resulted in arguably the strongest and most cohesive effort of the band's storied career. From the hit single "Rope" to the frenetic opener "Bridge Burning" to the beautifully bipolar "These Days" to stunning guest spots from Bob Mould ("Dear Rosemary") and Krist Novoselic ("I Should Have Known"), "Wasting Light" is a singular triumph: a band that's headlined arenas, stadiums and festivals the world over stripping itself down to the bare essentials and coming up with its finest hour.

The "2011 MTV Movie Awards" will turn fantasy into reality as the improbable materializes live before viewers' eyes. The magic and wonder of movies will go from the big screen to the "Movie Awards" stage as the fantastical world of whimsical landscapes and larger-than-life, reality-defying moments that audiences love are celebrated. Sure to be a treat for the over-active imagination, this year's ceremony will build upon the "Movie Awards" trademark individuality and status as Hollywood's most outrageous live event to provide movie fans with an experience worthy of their favorite blockbusters from the past year.

Emmy(R) Award Winner Mark Burnett returns for the fifth year in a row to executive produce the "2011 MTV Movie Awards" in Los Angeles, where movie megastars will vie for the golden popcorn in award categories as only MTV could create them. The "2011 MTV Movie Awards" will be a dead heat as the blockbusters "Inception" and "The Social Network" give fan favorite film franchises "The Twilight Saga" and "Harry Potter" some serious competition that could make the night anyone's to win. Winner voting at MovieAwards.MTV.com for the "2011 MTV Movie Awards" in 12 returning and all-new categories closes on Saturday, June 4. The "BEST MOVIE" category will remain an ongoing battle throughout the LIVE show.
