Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl has revealed that the band have begun work on a new record, which Grohl hopes will be ‘our heaviest album yet’, with rumours circulating that they make work with former Nirvana producer Butch Vig, who also worked with Sonic Youth and Smashing Pumpkins in the Nineties.
Grohl has said plans for the new record, their first since 2007’s ‘Echoes, Silence Patience and Grace’ are under way and they hope to return to the studio in September to begin recording sessions. He told BBC 6 Music: “Foo Fighters have just started writing and we’re going to start recording in September so life is full of music.”
In addition to the new Foo Fighters LP, Grohl is living up to his reputation as one of the hardest working men in rock after Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme confirmed he, Grohl and Led Zeppelin legend John Paul Jones will head into the studio this summer to record new material for Them Crooked Vultures. “I felt we’ve only just started to pick up steam. Why would we want to stop now?” Homme told The Sun. While John Paul Jones added: “We all know we have so much more in us yet.”
Them Crooked Vultures released their debut self-titled album in November last year.
