Dave Grohl says that the Foo Fighters’ next album is in the can, according to a recent interview he did with the Bill Simmons podcast.
“We just finished making a record,” he said. He mentioned that at least one of the songs has been germinating for a long time. “There’s a riff on the new record I’ve been working on for 25 years. The first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle.”
He also mentioned that he’s working on a documentary on bands touring in vans.
“The movie isn’t so much about really awesome van tour anecdotes, it’s more about the drive to do it,” he said.
“Why would anyone give up everything, quit their job, leave everything behind, just to chase this dream with no guarantee you’re ever going to make it? And you starve, you bleed, you’re sick, you’re pissed, you get taken to jail and in fights, but you always make it to the next gig. Everyone has the same story, and it’s absolutely the key to success.”
He didn’t give release dates for either project. Foo Fighters have a few festival dates planned, including Virginia’s Something In The Water, Boston Calling and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Get more info on their tour dates here.
