Dave Grohl Confirms Foo Fighters' Plan for Next Album
For the last few months, Dave Grohl has put "Foo Fighters" on the backburner and fully devoted himself to the promotional campaign of his documentary "Sound City."
His decision to do so has led to speculation that the rock band, which has earned him 11 Grammy awards, could be dead. But the former "Nirvana" drummer has discarded those rumours of breakup by revealing that he and the rest of his bandmates are already thinking about their next album and will hit the studios once he is done with his documentary-related commitments.
They reunited recently too at the 2013 Sundance festival and there Grohl told MTV News: "It's funny, we don't really consider this the Foo Fighters ... we're Rick Springfield's backing band, we're john Fogerty's backing band. We're not up there playing 'Everlong' every night, we're just hoping our heroes get up on stage and play.
"But we have a plan, we know exactly what's coming next, and I have the music for the next record and we're going to start working on it once we finish doing all this stuff. And we have really awesome, big plans for the next album," Grohl continued, "and I'm really excited about it."
Despite his confirmation that "Foo Fighters" will produce new music, the 44-year-old refused to divulge any more info about it and wouldn't even put a timeframe on its release.
"If I give you something now [about a release date], it means I'll actually have to make that deadline," the "Pretender" crooner joked.
