Published Jan 19, 2011It's an exciting time to be Foo Fighters fan. Not only are the band preparing to release their "heaviest album yet," but frontman Dave Grohl recently teamed up with bassist Krist Novoselic and guitarist Pat Smear for a pseudo-Nirvana reunion, in which they played the B-side "Marigold." Now, we have another piece of good news: Foo Fighters will be releasing a documentary to go along with the new album.
But this isn't just a DVD to accompany to CD release of the new record -- it's a full-blown feature film that will appear in theatres. Directed by documentary filmmaker James Moll and produced by Spitfire Pictures, it will "chronicle the entire history of the Foo Fighters from the cassette demos Grohl recorded during his tenure as Nirvana's drummer through their ascent to [becoming] one of the biggest rock bands on the planet." This will culminate in an in-depth look at the new album.
And the documentary isn't the only film that Foo Fighters fans have to look forward to, as Grohl will reportedly make an appearance in the upcoming Muppets movie.
As for the new Foos LP, it was recorded on analog equipment in Grohl's garage with former Nirvana producer Butch Vig. The 11-track collection is reportedly finished and is expected out sometime this spring. Click on the video embedded below for a brief teaser of the song "Bridge Burning." As promised, it's heavy as hell.
