Rock 101 question and answer: Thu Jan 24 [Foo Fighters]
Foo Fighters plan for the next album…
Dave Grohl may be busy promoting his debut as a film director and assembling superstar concerts, but he hasn't forgotten about his main gig. Grohl told MTV News that Foo Fighters are already thinking about their next album, saying, "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 . . . we have really awesome, big plans for the next album and I'm really excited about it."
The Foos announced that they were going on hiatus late last year after finishing the touring cycle for their seventh album, 2011's Wasting Light. Even then, however, Grohl was talking about a follow-up, saying, "(I have) a concept for the next album we've never done before. And who knows? There might be a movie to go with it."
