With a documentary film to promote, playing around the world as part of the Sound City Players and recording a new Queens Of The Stone Age album with Josh Homme, serial workaholic Dave Grohl has got far too much spare time on his hands and so is flying to Los Angeles this week to begin work on the latest Foo Fighters record.
Grohl had hinted at a prolonged break for the band when the touring duties following the release of ‘Wasting Light‘ in 2011 were completed last year, but during a brief chat with Brits host James Corden at the awards ceremony yesterday (February 20th), he revealed plans for the group to reconvene sooner than expected.
“I return to Los Angeles tomorrow to start work on a Foo Fighters record,” he told Corden.
Grohl returned to the Queens Of The Stone Age fold after the departure of drummer Joey Costillo; with Mark Lanegan and bass player Nick Oliveri also contributing to studio sessions, the new LP is to mark a brief reunion for the band’s celebrated ‘Songs For The Deaf‘ era line-up.
