DAVE GROHL Claims FOO FIGHTERS New Album Is “Finished”
FOO FIGHTERS have completed work on their new studio album according to frontman DAVE GROHL. It will be the follow up to their 2017 record “Concrete and Gold,” which peaked at number 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Charts.
During a recent appearance on “The Bill Simmons Podcast” the frontman and singer DAVE GROHL gave a surprising update on the band’s forthcoming record saying;
“We just finished making a record. Some of those songs, the best ones happen in 45 minutes. Then there’s other songs — 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.”
During the interview the FOO FIGHTERS leader DAVE GROHL also confirmed that he is working on a new documentary focused on life touring in a van revealing
“I’ve interviewed everybody, THE BEATLES toured in a van, GUNS N’ ROSES, METALLICA, U2, everybody has had a van. There’s something about that time, you wear it like a badge.
“The movie isn’t so much about really awesome van tour andecdotes, it’s more about the drive to do it,” he explained. “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.
Over the past few weeks FOO FIGHTERS have been releasing EP’s from their archvies leading to the 25th anniversary of their self titled album released in 1995. You can listen to the interview here.
