Over the past few years, musical multitasker Dave Grohl has invested most of his time into the hard-rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures. But if early reports are any indication, 2011 appears to be a year largely devoted to the Foo Fighters. BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe spoke with Grohl about the band’s forthcoming seventh studio album, which was reportedly finished this week. During his talk with Lowe, Grohl provided a handful of early details regarding the yet-to-be-named release.
During the interview, Grohl described the album as “massive,” saying it can be expected in stores this spring. The band recorded the follow-up to 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace over a four-month period in Grohl’s garage at his home. In describing the album, Grohl remarks that “there’s 11 songs and front to back there’s not one sleepy ballad.” Additionally, the band’s seventh studio album will reunite Grohl with producer Butch Vig for the first time since working together on Nirvana’s 1991 album Nevermind.
