Foo Fighters have posted a slew of photos online from the ongoing recording sessions for the band’s eighth album, for which the group is reportedly recording one song each in a dozen or different and iconic studios around the United States. Among the photos are shots taken at Washington D.C.’s Inner Ear Studios, Chicago’s Electrical Audio Studios and Rancho de la Luna Studios in Joshua Tree, California. Frontman Dave Grohl, drummer Taylor Hawkins and others members of the band and their team are visible in the pics, which also catch them having beers, going to Denny’s and doing target shooting.
- Studios in New York, Los Angeles and Seattle have also been pegged as stops on the Foos’ recording itinerary.
- Producer Butch Vig recently told U.K. magazine Kerrang!, “We’ve been recording at some different locations, but we’re almost halfway done with the recording and it’s going well . . . It’s been a challenge, but it’s also been exciting.”
- Vig, who also helped the Foos record 2011’s Wasting Light in Grohl’s garage, said the group is experimenting with a variety of recording techniques.
- The new Foo Fighters album is due out later this year, possibly by the summer.
- The band has just one U.S. date on its calendar so far, at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware on June 20th.
