Well we knew a new Foo Fighters album was coming this year, but it might be here even sooner than we thought! How so? Well, frontman Dave Grohl confirmed that the new album is completely FINISHED!
Grohl revealed the news in a new interview on the Bill Simmons Podcast saying: “We just finished making a record. Some of those songs, the best ones happen in 45 minutes. Then there’s other songs — there’s a riff on the new record I’ve been working on for 25 years. The first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle.”
How very cool! He also shared the news that he's also working on a new documentary which focuses on touring in a van.
“I’ve interviewed everybody… The Beatles toured in a van, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, U2, everybody has had a van. There’s something about that time, you wear it like a badge.The movie isn’t so much about really awesome van tour andecdotes, it’s more about the drive to do it. Why would anyone give up everything, quit their job, leave everything behind, just to chase this dream with no guarantee you’re ever going to make it? And you starve, you bleed, you’re sick, you’re pissed, you get taken to jail and in fights, but you always make it to the next gig. Everyone has the same story, and it’s absolutely the key to success.”
How exciting!!! A new album AND a sick documentary to look forward to? Count us in!
