Dave Grohl Says The Foo Fighters Are Ready To Record Again

Dave Grohl just can’t stop rocking.

After announcing last October that the Foo Fighters were set to “go away for a while,” Grohl has revealed that the band is ready to reconvene and begin work on a new album.

Grohl made the revelation during a red carpet interview at this year’s BRIT Awards in London on February 20.

“I return to Los Angeles tomorrow to start work on a Foo Fighters record,” he said to the show’s host, James Cordon (viaKerrang!), adding that the new material would be released “eventually.”

It would be the Foo Fighters’ eighth studio full-length, and the first since 2011 album Wasting Light, which included such singles as “Rope” and “These Days.”

Gorhl’s time since the short-lived Foo Fighters hiatus was spent releasing and promoting his documentary directorial debut, Sound City. He also assembled an all-star band, the Sound City Players, to coincide with the movie about the famed Van Nuys recording studio where such legendary albums as Nirvana’sNevermind were recorded.

The Sound City Players, which features rock luminaries like Stevie NicksJohn Fogerty and Rick Springfield alongside the Foo Fighters, have played a handful of concert dates, including a sold-out show at the Hollywood Palladium.
