Dave Grohl Rumored to Be Working on New Album
This comes via NME, who found an Instagram post by Damien Curry, a musician who goes by the name of Mister Curry and who calls himself the "Electric Love Freedom Fighter." He recently ran into Grohl and posted a selfie of the two with the caption, "Not a bad way to start the day. I don't ever really care too much for 'famous' musicians, but my close friends know how gangster I am about Nirvana and this guy! #DaveGrohl Talked about our kids, his new record, producing...man...what a kool kat. The 12 year old in me just lost his s---. #Nirvana #FooFighters #rocknroll #music"
Back in March, following rumors that tensions between Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins had created a split within the Foo Fighters, the band announced that they were not breaking up with a seven-minute video that pretended to show Grohl working on a solo album as the other members looked to replace him. It concluded with them announcing, "For the millionth time, we're not breaking up. And nobody's going f---ing solo!"
The Foo Fighters' break came at the end of the promotional cycle for 2014's Sonic Highways, an album that arrived with an eight-part documentary of the band recording in eight different American cities. In the summer of 2015, Grohl broke his leg when he fell off a stage in Sweden and was forced to cancel the remaining dates on their European tour. They returned on July 4 in Washington, D.C., with Grohl sitting in a throne that, by his own admission, he designed while whacked out on painkillers.
But Grohl appears to be itching to get going again. Back in June, he performed an invite-only solo acoustic set in Cannes and, a month ago, sat in with the Prophets of Rage for a cover of the MC5's "Kick Out the Jams."
