Foo Fighters are heading back into the studio to start work on their new album, frontman Dave Grohl has confirmed.
During a headline set at Brazil’s Rock In Rio festival on Saturday, Grohl confirmed that the next step for the band is to return to North American and head straight into the studio to record the follow-up to 2017 record Concrete & Gold.
Speaking to the crowd during the performance, Grohl said: “I don’t know when we’ll be back down here again, but we will.”
He added: “We go home next week and we start making a new Foo Fighters record. It’s good, it’s good.”
The confirmation comes after the band’s drummer, Taylor Hawkins, told RockSound.TV: “Well, from what I’ve heard from our fearless leader Dave Grohl, he has a lot of demos that he’s worked on and I think we’ll start, once this tour is over… I think not too soon after that we’ll start the process of putting the songs together as a band.”
He continued: “It’s a long process, we do a lot of demoing and stuff, but I think that we’ll have, I’m hoping, I think we’ll have a new record by next year. We should.”
