Dave Grohl has opened up a little — just a little — about the newFoo Fighters album, which the band is now in the process of recording. In an interview with BBC Radio One, Grohl said about the band’s eighth studio outing, “We haven’t really disclosed exactly what we are doing. We’re doing something that no one really knows about and we’ll announce pretty soon I think . . . I honestly think the entire concept is really going to take people by surprise and it sounds nuts.”
- Grohl added, “We recorded something the other day that’s unlike anything we’ve ever done and it starts with a fuse and then it explodes.”
- The singer and guitarist has hinted in previous interviews that the band is recording in a way that “no one’s ever done before.”
- Rumors have circulated that the group will hit 12 legendary studios in 12 different major cities and record one track at each location, although that is yet to be confirmed.
- The Foos are playing on Saturday night in New York (February 1st) aboard a special boat as part of the festivities surrounding this Sunday’s (February 2nd) Super Bowl in New Jersey
- Foo Fighters was also named last week as one of the headliners for the 2014 Firefly Music Festival, which takes place from June 19th to 22nd in Dover, Delaware.
- Grohl will also be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April as part of Nirvana.
