Foo Fighters Reveal If They’re Currently In The Studio


Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett discussed Foo Fighters’ recent show in Frome, their Glastonbury performance, and the band’s next album in a new NME interview.

“It was great, the show was really fun,” he told NME. When asked about what it was like to visit the Worthy Farm site, he said: “You get an interesting sense of the size of Glastonbury because it’s completely empty. I can’t wait to see what it looks like full of people and we’re there to compare it.”

He continued: “Can you believe that I’ve never been to Glastonbury – ever? It’s like the one festival that I’ve still never been to, so I’m looking forward to it. I’ve never had the Glastonbury experience.”

“Absolutely we could [play three hours at Glastonbury], you never know!”

He also discussed the band’s next album, with his quote hinting that the band aren’t quite in the studio yet, despite teasing two new songs live in Frome.

“I don’t know what our plans are, but we’ll make a new album when the time is right,” said Shiflett of their next record. “There will be a new Foo Fighters at some point.”

Last year drummer Taylor Hawkins told NME: “We will make a new record at some point. We won’t really be ready until Dave’s ready to go. It’s on the books, so we’ll definitely be playing. We never really know, we just wait for a text from Dave saying ‘hey, let’s go down to the studio.”
