Dave Grohl has revealed that he is heading back to America to start work on a new Foo Fighters album today (February 21).

The frontman has been in the UK this week promoting his new movie Sound City and also played a gig with his new supergroup, the Sound City Players, at London's Kentish Town Forum on Tuesday (February 19). Speaking at the Brit Awards last night, Grohl revealed that he is now on his way home and will start work on the next Foo Fighters album

Following Grohl's numerous side-projects and claims made by the frontman during their headline set at Leeds Festival in 2012 many Foo Fighters fans were prepared to spend a long time waiting for the band's next album. However, speaking to host James Corden during the ceremony, Grohl stated: "I return to Los Angeles tomorrow to start work on a Foo Fighters record."

However, it does not appear that the album will be on stereos any time soon with Grohl's only word on a release date being "eventually".

Grohl previously hinted at his "awesome plans" for the next Foo Fighters album, stating: "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."

Foo Fighters released their last album 'Wasting Light' in 2011.
