Foo Fighters Begin Work on Next Album
Published Feb 21, 2013Back in the fall, Dave Grohl announced that Foo Fighters would be going on hiatus, and ever since he's been entrenched in the release and promotion of his documentary Sound City. Now, the ever-busy alt-rocker is already preparing to resume work with his main project.
At the Brit Awards last night (February 20), Grohl told host James Corden that the band were about to begin work on a new LP. He said [via NME], "I return to Los Angeles tomorrow [February 25] to start work on a Foo Fighters record."
Fans shouldn't hold their breath for the album to arrive on shelves, however, since Grohl didn't specify any sort of due date and said only that it would arrive "eventually."
Grohl announced in late September that Foo Fighters would be going into hibernation, saying, "It's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while." Considering how busy Grohl has been since then — with both his film and his Queens of the Stone Age contributions — it hardly feels like the group have been away at all. In fact, the Foos performed a Led Zeppelin cover back in December for the Kennedy Center Honors.
The band's most recent album was 2011's Wasting Light.
