Foo Fighters Writing New Album

So much for that Foo Fighters hiatus announced in October 2012! According to frontman Dave Grohl, work on a new Foo Fighters album is set to begin this week.

Dave Grohl may be the hardest working man in rock today, having just premiered his ‘Sound City’ documentary, rolling out shows with his Sound City Players supergroup and recording a track with Paul McCartney and the surviving members of Nirvana. And instead of taking a presumed long break from his main gig, Grohl is already at work on a new Foo Fighters album.

The Foo’s most recent album, ‘Wasting Light,’ was unleashed in 2011 to much acclaim, earning the band a handful of Grammy Awards. According to NME, Grohl has decided that it’s time to work on another effort. “I return to Los Angeles tomorrow to start work on a Foo Fighters record,” Grohl divulged on Feb. 19, only four months after announcing a Foo Fighters hiatus in 2012.

In an earlier NME news piece, Grohl spoke of his plans for Foo Fighters after the ‘Sound City’ engagements were finished, and the frontman has since stuck with those plans. “We have a plan,” begins Grohl. “We know exactly what’s coming next, and I have the music for the next record and we’re going to start working on it once we finish doing all this stuff … And we have really awesome, big plans for the next album and I’m really excited about it.”

Stay tuned for more Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters news as it continues to break.

Cool. Before announcing the break, Grohl said about a year ago the band would start working on a new album. I'm happy I don't have to wait another 2 years or so for new material.

Just happened to be listening to 'Wasting Light' when I saw this news. I remember how good this is,
and so I have the same opinion as anyone else: if the new record can reach the quality of 'Wasting
Light' (it might be a bit too much to ask it to surpass), than it'll be one to repeat in 2013.

Grohl is definitely one of the most hardworking rock stars I've ever known of but I don't see this being better than Wasting Light, or even solid, for that matter.

I have to give the man credit despite how mediocre I find most of his stuff, the guy works hard and is probably one of the best things going in mainstream rock.

I'm kind of hoping they change the sound though. Granted I don't want no dubstep and shit but I always find Foo Fighters to be an amazing singles band but everything outside the singles has been unremarkable and the songwriting just blends together album to album but maybe that's just me.

"wasting light was definitely THE album to go out on so I hope they don't fuck it up."

They should have gone out on There Is Nothing Left To Lose. Everything since then has been fairly mediocre. In Your Honor had a couple really good tracks, but they haven't made a solid album in years.

Regardless, I still have respect for Grohl and the band.

"Dave Grohl may be the hardest working man in rock today"

Only because I am a true wise***, Steven Wilson is the hardest working man in rock today.
