Foo Fighters to record new album
2012-01-06 by William Lim | 55 Comments
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has announced via NME that the band will return to the studio this year for the recording of their follow-up to Wasting Light. The upcoming eighth studio album is still currently in the writing stages. The full statement to NME reads as follows:

We're not finished yet. There are still more shows to play, more songs to write, more albums to record, for years to come. I mean if you would have told me 17 years ago that in 2012 I would be writing songs for our eighth studio album...well.

Additionally, Dave Grohl is currently collaborating with Stephen Pearcy and Warren DeMartini, respectively the singer and guitarist of Ratt, on a song as part of their currently unnamed collaboration project. Stephen Pearcy recently discussed the project on his Twitter page:

Thing is it's a way cool thing of Dave. We’re just privileged to be a part of that. Next Ratt!

Dave Grohl never lets up. Dave Grohl eats, breathes, and sleeps music, live shows, and collaborations.

I didn't love Wasting Light as some did but every time they announce a new album I always hope I will like it.

Foo Fighters have literally never let me down, so I don't see this being anything less than a delight.

Such a dull unremarkable band, yet everyone seems to respect them because Dave Grohl's a cool guy.

Pretty big error in logic to think that so many people could enjoy a band based solely on a personality. If their music were shit and he was the only thing cool about them, they wouldn't have the longevity they have.

Cult of personality fades.

I just consider them very overrated for the type of bland radio rock they produce, their earlier albums were good, nothing special, yet i've seen very little criticism of them and I can't be the only one. To me, they're very middle of the road with nothing exciting to offer, just plain old foo fighters.

Their peers in the "monotonous radio-rock" genre, or just music in general?

Nothing monotonous about it.

I agree with BonRurgundy. This band is painfully overrated.

I mean Nickelback get slated (rightly so) for producing simple, radio friendly rock dross. Yet as far as I can tell, that's all the Foo Fighters have been doing for the last few years.

BonRugundy, hurry up and rate more things so I can get a feel for your musical taste and derive pleasure from reading them while sipping a glass of fine wine and judging you.

Loads of people slate the Foos for this very reason, despite the fact they're unarguably THE greatest band in radio rock

Wasting Light is insanely good for a commercial rock album, so this will most likely be at least great.

not every band exists to break the mold. Foo Fighters are what they are. Yes one can say they are Generic but that's what they do. They make accessible rock music and they do it well. If every band you listen to is insanely odd or far from the spectrum of the norm then you should probably look at yourself and consider the fact that you are trying to hard to be different.... P.S. comparing Nickelback to Foo Fighters is ridiculous and shows a low music I.Q.

Agreed on the ridiculousness of that comparison you made stated by DELienz above. I thought you were just kind of negative in an annoying manner, but the Nickelback thing just isn't even respectable.

Wasting Light was actually recorded the ol' fashioned way: analog. I wonder if they're going to do it again this time around. Wasting Light had a very distinctive sound and I'm sure the TREMENDOUS momentum the band has had this year will carry over to the song writing and recording of another excellent album.

They've had a hell of a year this year, haven't they? Damn...from "White Limo" with Lemmy to absolutely owning The Westboro Baptist Church in the best possible way, to that garage tour and the fan-made music videos and the 'Back And Forth' documentary and Joan Jett playing their concert and reuniting with their old producer...and, yeah, the album itself being their best since 'The Colour and the Shape'.

What a year for the Foo.
