Foo Fighters to record new album at start of 2014, guitarist Chris Shiflett says
Dave Grohl recently revealed that the band's follow-up to 2011's 'Wasting Light' has now been written
Dave Grohl recently confirmed that the album, the band's follow-up to 2011's 'Wasting Light', has now been written and hinted at a 2014 release date.
"It's a little way off," Grohl explained, talking to XFM last week (August 16). "It's not ready to happen right now, but I think next year is going to be a really big year for the Foo Fighters without question."
Now Shiflett has echoed Grohl's comments by telling Rolling Stone: "We actually just started making a new Foo Fighters record within the last few weeks. We've started rehearsing." However, he went further than his bandmate by adding: "It was a very short hiatus. We're going to start recording the new Foo Fighters record at the beginning of next year."
Meanwhile, Grohl has recently teased that the album will "not be a conventional record" and hinted that it could be recorded in some kind of groundbreaking style by saying: "We are going to make this album in a way that no one's ever done before, and we're pretty excited about it."
