Dave Grohl has once again opened up about the upcoming tenth Foo Fighters record, following on from the previous teases the frontman has revealed.
Grohl has expanded on his comments about the change-up since 2017’s Concrete and Gold, saying the tenth record will be “unlike anything we’ve ever done”.
Speaking to Kerrang, Grohl teased uplifting, hook-heavy material reflecting the group’s quarter-century of success: “There are choruses on this record that 50-fucking-thousand people are gonna sing, and it’s gonna bring everyone’s fucking hearts together in that moment. And that’s what it’s all about. “Honestly, it doesn’t feel like we’ve been doing this for 25 fucking years,” he continued, “It’s funny, some people measure time in days and months and years. But with me, I measure time in musical terms. When I think about 1995 to ’96, that was one thing. When I think of ’90 to ’99, that’s another, and so on.
“I see my life in these markers that are represented by our music. I feel like I’ve been writing this big story, and specific lyrics and songs relate to specific things that happened to me at those times.”
The band are currently gearing up for a throwback tour of North America, where they will follow a similar path to their first 1990s jaunt across the states. The tour begins in April.
Grohl’s comments follow his previous teases of the album, where he simply described it as “fucking weird.”
