Foo Fighters Planning New Album But It May Not Come Out Anytime Soon
The Foo Fighters have been on hiatus for a while. Frontman Dave Grohl has kept busy with other projects, including working with Queens of the Stone Age and promoting his Sound City documentary with live shows. Granted, it hasnít been that long since the Foo Fighters put out an album. Wasting Light only reached audiences in 2011.
Hiatus or no hiatus, the various band members are still hanging out and, according to MTV, even performed together at the Sundance Film Festival. The news outlet caught up with Grohl recently, and determined the band actually has a new album in the works.
"We have a plan, we know exactly what's coming next, and I have the music for the next record and we're going to start working on it once we finish doing all this stuff.Ē
Unfortunately, that plan doesnít extend to a release date, although Grohl exhibited his usual grace and charm when sashaying around the query.
"If I give you something now. It means I'll actually have to make that deadline."
Still, news of an upcoming album doesnít seem like a full-on hiatus to me, and even if we donít get new music for a couple of years, that wonít be any longer than the distance between the bandís 2007 album, Echoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace and Wasting Light. However long it takes and whatever sound the group chooses to roll with is fine in my book, and Iím sure many other fans wholeheartedly agree.
