Foo Fighters Complete ‘Massive’ New Album
Dave Grohl reveals that the upcoming Foo Fighters album is ready to go for a Spring release.
The untitled disc is the follow-up to 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. The band headed into Grohl’s garage last September to begin working on the album, which they said at the time that they were going back to basics and rocking the hell out. It appears they kept that spirit throughout the recording process.
“There’s 11 songs and front to back there’s not one sleepy ballad,” Grohl told the BBC.
This also marks the reunion of Grohl and producer Butch Vig, the alt rock vet and drummer for Garbage who has collaborated with bands such as Green Day, Jimmy Eat World, Smashing Pumpkins, and Nirvana’s 1991 landmark album Nevermind.
“Butch [Vig] swears that he’s had more fun making this record than any other record than he’s made in his life – that’s a lot of records,” states Grohl.
“The process was so simple. It was really in my garage. You could put a mini van in there and that’s it. The fact that we did it without any computers it was just really simple. It just sounds massive.”
Details about an exact release date, album title, and touring info have not been released yet. Grohl admits that the band is still trying to decide on a single.
“I don’t even know what the single is going to be. It’s hard to choose because it sounds like there’s more than one. We entered into this project with a direction. The first song we started recording the tape just started shredding.”
