Foo Fighters Record New Album In Grohl’s Garage

The Foo Fighters are returning to the stage in early 2011 with a new album in tow. The album is currently being recorded in front man Dave Grohl’s garage and is being produced by none other than Butch Vig, the producer of Nirvana’s seminal album Nevermind. Grohl notes that he got the idea for the recording when on tour with Them Crooked Vultures in Australia. Grohl recently told FMBQ:
I was sitting writing a new song and I thought, 'OK, we should make a documentary about the recording of this new album and make it a history of the band too. Rather than just record the album in the most expensive studio with the most state-of-the-art equipment, what if Butch and I were to get back together after 20 years and dust off the tape machines and put them in my garage?' I literally backed the minivan out of the garage, pulled the lawnmower out, put a drum set in it and set up mics. We soundproofed the garage door so that my neighbors wouldn't call the cops.
Also involved in the recording process is former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. Grohl explained, “There's a song called 'I Should Have Known' that I thought would sound great with his bass-playing and accordion-playing. It's probably the darkest song on the album." The Foos have been confirmed as one of the headliners for next year's Sasquatch! Music Festival in Gorge, WA in May, and the band will play two massive gigs at the Milton Keynes Bowl in the U.K. on July 2 and 3.
