Foo Fighters, Metallica & Red Hot Chili Peppers Debut Supergroup


Foo Fighters, Metallica, and Red Hot Chili Peppers have debuted a new supergroup, Alternative Nation has exclusively learned. Chad Smith, Post Malone, Robert Trujillo, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Chaney, and Andrew Watt held a private performance yesterday, with the first new rock supergroup performance of the pandemic era taking place in 2020. Whether the supergroup is a one off, we will have to wait and see! Dave Grohl and Metallica also just confirmed a movie.

James Hetfield has not performed live with Metallica since exiting rehab earlier this year. He recently told the fan club So What! on Metallica’s official website, “Well, COVID is certainly not welcomed. A pandemic is not welcomed. People are hurting. People are dying.

There’s lots of people struggling, really, really struggling with funds, wherever they’re living, they can’t afford things anymore. Lives are changing drastically. So I don’t mean to sound cold about it, but for me personally, it’s been really helpful to slow down, stop the work, stop the circus of what’s going on with touring and band and all of that stuff, family struggles as well.

So it’s really good to have time to just be. To just be. Not have to have an agenda, but just to chill, to soak up life on life’s terms, to plug into my community here in Colorado. That’s definitely one thing that has been difficult for me to have [in the past] because of coming and going every few weeks, not really being able to plug into any commitments or say, ‘Hey, let’s do this once a week,’ or get together and barbecue, have a cigar pit or whatever, those weekly things that people get to do. I was not able to do those and now I am. I’ve built a really cool community of friends, true, unconditionally loving friends, and I would not have had that if I didn’t have this time.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently recording a new album, their first record with guitarist John Frusciante since 2006’s Stadium Arcadium, featuring the hits “Dani California” and “Snow (Hey Oh).” Foo Fighters have a new album recorded and ready to go, and they originally planned to release it in 2020 to celebrate their 25th anniversary, but they have postponed plans for their new album and tour to 2021. RHCP are also expected to tour and release their new album in 2021. John Frusciante discussed a new Red Hot Chili Peppers hiatus yesterday.
