Foo Fighters end short hiatus with new Butch Vig-produced set
The Foo Fighters have tapped Butch Vig to produce their seventh studio album. It marks a reunion for head Foo Dave Grohl and Vig, who first worked together on Nirvana’s classic “Nevermind.”
The Foo Fighters had announced they were taking a brief hiatus, but that seems to be over now. During the brief break, Grohl recorded with Them Crooked Vultures, but now he's focused on the Foos. “Me and [Foos] drummer Taylor [Hawkins] have already started demoing songs,” Grohl told Rolling Stone at the Independent Spirit Awards late last week.
Grohl added that the album will truly be the epitome of garage rock: it will be recorded in analog in Grohl’s garage in Encino, Calif. The album is the group’s first studio album since 2007’s “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace.” The foursome will also chronicle the making of the album as part of a documentary chronicling the group’s 16 (!!!) years together.
Rolling Stone noted that Grohl said all this as he copiously swigged from a bottle of whiskey, to take it for what it’s worth.
