Dave Grohl Promises Something New to Foo FansBy: Mike Tuttle - February 10, 2014
Foo Fighters front man, Dave Grohl, is one of the top men in rock nowadays.
At the 2014 Grammy Awards, he won Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media (for Sound City) and Foo Fighters won Best Rock Song, “Cut Me Some Slack.”
In 2013 he delivered the keynote speech at the SXSW (South by Southwest) conference in Austin, Texas.
He is a singer, songwriter, and film director, and has played guitar and drums with many modern and iconic musicians such as Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty, Nine Inch Nails, and was the drummer for 1990s grunge band, Nirvana, before forming Foo Fighters.
In other words, Grohl is becoming a rock legend himself.
Recently, the 45-year old father of two has said that the Foo Fighters’ upcoming album is going to different than anything the band has done before.
“We haven’t really disclosed exactly what we are doing,” he said.
However, according to Antimusic, it is known that Grohl, along with Foo members Pat Smear, Taylor Hawkins, and Nate Mendel, are using recording techniques that are totally new and are once again working with producer Butch Vig.
“I know what it sounds like and I honestly think the entire concept is really going to take people by surprise and it sounds nuts,” Grohl said. “We recorded something the other day that’s unlike anything we’ve ever done and it starts with a fuse and then it explodes.”
A few weeks ago, the band posted a picture of a row of master tapes on their Instagram page, stating “It’s F***ing On,” exciting thousands of fans from all over the globe.
The new album is being recorded in 12 cities around the world. According to Contactmusic, definite city choices include Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Seattle.
Grohl declined to say when their eighth album will be released, but did say it would be “great.”
”It’s a little ways off, it’s not ready to happen right now but I think next year is going to be a really big year for the Foo Fighters without question…I can’t wait.”
