Foo Fighters complete 'massive' new album
Foo Fighters have finished work on their seventh album, with the record due to be released in the spring.
The band's frontman Dave Grohl told BBC Radio 1 the LP had been made in his garage with the help of legendary producer Butch Vig, who last worked with the singer when he was behind the drum kit in Nirvana.
Grohl said the group have given the yet-to-be-titled record a "massive" sound and feel inspired by the results of their time making it.
"There's 11 songs and front to back there's not one sleepy ballad," the electric guitar player explained.
"We entered into this project with a direction. The first song we started recording the tape just started shredding."
He added that the Foos have not yet decided on what the first single from the album will be as they are finding it difficult to pick one standout track.
British fans of the group will have the chance to hear the band's new songs live next summer, when Foo Fighters headline two massive dates at the Milton Keynes Bowl.
They are also lined up to appear at the Isle of Wight Festival in June.
