Foo Fighters finish new album & get in the van

 

So many huge moves are being made in alternative music this year with the Red Hot Chili Peppers bringing back John Frusciante, My Chemical Romance launching a massive reunion tour, and now it looks another big time player has something in store for 2020. Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters confirmed on the Bill Simmons Podcast that his band has finished recording their latest album.

According to Consequence of Sound, Grohl said the following:

“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.”

On top of that, Grohl revealed his latest documentary project will dig into the hard knock life of band touring in a van. The yet-to=be titled doc will feature members of Metallica, U2, and Guns ‘n Roses remarking on their early risky days in their music careers and how challenging it can be,

“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.”

Grohl previously worked on the docuseries ‘Sonic Highways’ for HBO that focused on the Foos touring different music centric cities to record their 2015 album. The first episode featured the band crafted what I might say is their best song an anthem to our beloved Chicago, ‘Something from Nothing’.
