Foo Fighters Complete 10th Album
He’d previously hinted that the follow-up to 2017’s Concrete and Gold was “fucking weird,” having earlier noted that he "can see the songs In my head. … I don’t read music; I can see the songs in shapes and patterns. So I can see the next record. I know that there’s another one there. I don't know when, but I think I know what we should do.”
“We just finished another fucking record, and I’m so fucking proud of it. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever done,” Grohl told Kerrang! in a new interview. “I’m fucking excited for people to hear it and I can’t wait to jump on that fucking stage to play it. ... There are choruses on this record that 50-fucking-thousand people are gonna sing, and it’s gonna bring everyone’s fucking hearts together in that moment. And that’s what it’s all about.”
This year marks the band’s 25th anniversary – but the frontman said he doesn't think of their career in those terms. “It’s funny, some people measure time in days and months and years,” he explained. “But with me, I measure time in musical terms. When I think about 1995 to ’96, that was one thing. When I think of ’90 to ’99, that’s another, and so on. I see my life in these markers that are represented by our music. I feel like I’ve been writing this big story, and specific lyrics and songs relate to specific things that happened to me at those times.”
Foo Fighters previously announced a North American road trip named The Van Tour that celebrates their early days, when they traveled from gig to gig in a battered old vehicle. Their schedule begins on April 12 and runs until May 20.
