Dave Grohl has hooked up with new band RDGLDGRN, NME can confirm.

In an interview, which you can read in this week's issue of the magazine, the Washington trio said that Grohl recorded drums for their currently-untitled debut album at LA's Sound City Studios in 2012 – and he may tour with them later in the year.

Grohl met the band at the studio complex while he was working on his upcoming documentary about its history.

Speaking about Grohl's involvement in the project, the band said he "knocked out half our record like some kind of machine", adding that it was "overwhelming" to work with such a legendary sticksman.

Head over to the NME Radar blog now to listen to the first new track to be aired from the sessions, 'Million Fans'. Pick up this week's magazine to find out what the band had to say about their UK touring plans.

RDGLDGRN aren’t the only band the Foo Fighters mainman will be drumming for this year – he is also set to get behind the kit for tracks on the new album by Queens Of The Stone Age.

He also recently drummed for metal band Ghost and debuted his all-star Sound City Players at Sundance Film Festival last weekend.
