Foo Fighters Finish New Album, Dave Grohl Working On Touring Documentary


The Foo Fighters have finished up work on their tenth studio album according to frontman/guitarist Dave Grohl. He confirmed the news during a recent appearance on the Bill Simmons Podcast, offering:

“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 also revealed later in the discussion that he has been helming an upcoming documentary focused on the rite of passage that is touring in a van, saying of his progress:

“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 anecdotes, it’s more about the drive to do it.”

“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.”
