Dave Grohl Cancels New Foo Fighters Album Release


Dave Grohl has confirmed that Foo Fighters are temporarily shelving their completed new album due to the current worldwide pandemic.

Grohl told Q magazine, “We’ve kind of shelved it for now to figure out exactly when it’s going to happen.”

“I think we were supposed to start touring this week and I was so f***ing excited to hit the road, so excited to play these new songs, but all of that took a backseat to what’s going on.”

He also told 98.7 FM about the new album, “It’s filled with anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs. It’s almost like a dance record—not like a EDM, disco, modern dance record. It’s got groove, man,” Grohl said.

“To me, it’s like our David Bowie’s Let’s Dance record. That’s what we wanted to make, ’cause we were, ‘Yeah, let’s make this really up, fun record!’ And it’s got its dark corners and whatever, but we were so excited to go out and play, and then we just hit pause on everything.”

Grohl also told Q that his family has been focused on education since the stay at home order in California.

“Being a high school dropout, I’m really not fond of the whole process.”

“But I actually just walked out of the room where my 11 year old, Harper, is teaching my five-and-a-half year old, Ophelia, how to write and teaching her about earthquakes and volcanoes.”

“My 11 year old is turning into the teacher. It’s amazing.”
