Dave Grohl reunites with Krist Novoselic, Butch Vig for “heavy” Foo Fighters LP

Dave Grohl calling Krist Novoselic (former Nirvana bassist) and Butch Vig (Nirvana's Nevermind producer)... Interesting new Foo Fighters album coming!

In April 1990, blossoming grunge band, Nirvana, traveled to producer Butch Vig’s Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin to begin work on an album that would come to define a generation. This album was, of course, 1991’s multi-platinum selling Nevermind. Now, twenty years later, former Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic have reunited, along with Vig, for Grohl’s current band, the Foo Fighters, new LP. “This whole project has been really cool,” Grohl said in an interview with BBC. “I haven’t made a record with Butch for 20 years.” Vig will be producing the album, while Novoselic is slated to guest on a track. So far, the Foos have cut seven tracks and are planning to lay down five or six more.

Grohl—who had previously been touring with his supergroup, Them Crooked Vultures—says he has been recording the tracks in his garage (“Totally old school analog”) and that it will be the Foos’ heaviest album yet. “Each song is full on, the whole record is full on,” he said. “In the 14 songs, there’s not one acoustic guitar, there’s not even one in the house.”

If this whole grunge-revival experience sounds like something you’re dying to watch unfold, you’re in luck—Grohl revealed that the band is documenting the entire experience for an upcoming movie to be released in 2011.”Basically, 2011, you’re not gonna be able to get us out of your hair, that’s what we’re planning,” Grohl said. “I’m excited.” We are too. The Foo Fighters also recently announced two UK shows next July with Death Cab for Cutie and Jimmy Eat World as opening acts.
