With the help of his fellow Foo Fighters and a little movie magic, Grohl takes on the role of Carrie White, from the classic horror movie based on Stephen King’s first novel.
The new album is planned for a Nov. 10 release date.
If the first few seconds of the Foo Fighters upcoming new record — a measly eight — let fans know anything it’s that Dave Grohl and the guys can definitely still rock.
With bands of a certain stature, the announcement of the announcement has become a part of the tradition. So, the Foo Fighters posting on Facebook that Monday will see big news is just part of the game. And we are playing!
The Dave Grohl-directed series will run for an hour each episode, with all spots airing on Friday at 11 p.m. on HBO.
Producer Butch Vig took to his Twitter account today (July 30) to reveal that the long awaited recording process is done and the record, due to drop this November, is “epic.”
“I don’t want my kid to think that the only way you can be a musician is to stand in line at a song contest audition, and then wind up having a bazillionaire tell you if you’re not a good singer,” Grohl said.
The Life Is Beautiful Festival will return for a second year in Las Vegas this October with Kanye West, Foo Fighters and Outkast as headliners.
Zedd, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Slayer, Rise Against and Pretty Lights will also perform.
“Hopefully they can hear the show out here,” he tweeted. “We’ll play loud.”
“We’re doing things that we’ve never done before. And I want to say that it’s only eight songs but I think it might be our longest record because, as I was writing these songs, I had to take a cinematic approach,” Dave Grohl said.
Much like the Dave Grohl-directed feature, Sound City, the Foo Fighters’ HBO show will be shot documentary style, and will be “a love letter to the history of American music,” according to Grohl himself.
Jett is a choice that Kurt Cobain would surely approve of.
