Foo Fighters have confirmed they are planning to head into the studio to record a new album in 2012.

The band only released their latest studio effort 'Wasting Light' in April of this year and frontman Dave Grohl has revealed on the band's official blog he has already started compiling ideas for new songs.

He wrote:

We're not finished yet. There are still more shows to play, more songs to write, more albums to record, for years to come. I mean if you would have told me 17 years ago that in 2012 I would be writing songs for our eighth studio album...well.


Foo Fighters were recently nominated for six gongs including Album Of The Year for 'Wasting Light' at next year's 54th annual Grammy Awards on February 12, 2012.

Grohl added: "The fact that a rock and roll record, made in a garage, completely analogue to tape with no help from computers, could be a Number One album around the world, and get a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year... well... these days that's no small feat.

"It's truly inspiring, and it makes us feel like the luckiest band in the world. So thanks. It means everything to us."

Other nominees include Kanye West, Adele and Mumford and Sons.
