The ex-drummer of Nirvana and the founder of Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl has come up with a surprising statement about the upcoming studio album of the Foos, ‘Medicine at Midnight,’ signaling a radical change of genre in their new sound.
During the most recent interview he gave to the British magazine NME, Dave Grohl opened up about the long-awaited tenth studio album of Foo Fighters, which will be out on February 5, 2021.
Within his first conversation after the release of the acclaimed single, ‘Shame Shame,’ from the album, Grohl admitted on behalf of his bandmates that they decided years ago they wanted to do something sounded fresh.
He continued and said that they’ve made many different types of the album, including acoustic, punk-rock, and mid-tempo Americana types of things. So the fans have to go with the band’s gut feeling for the next one, Grohl added.
Back in the days, during his latest appearance on Sirius XM, the iconic musician also said that they’re capable of doing almost anything, they may turn into a death metal band or they could be like the Carpenters, he said.
As you may recall, in October 2019, the band announced that they were recording their tenth studio album based on demos from Grohl. On February 13, 2020, Dave Grohl announced that the new album, called ‘Medicine at Midnight,’ was complete and will be out in time for the band’s 25th anniversary.
Here’s what Dave Grohl said during the interview he gave on NME:
“Since it’s our tenth record and 25th anniversary, we decided years ago that we wanted to do something that sounded fresh. We’ve made some many different types of albums, we’ve done acoustic things, we’ve done punk-rock things, mid-tempo Americana type of things.
We have a lot of albums to fall back on, so you just have to go with our gut feeling.”
During his former conversation on Sirius XM, Grohl said that:
“I honestly think we’re capable of doing almost anything. So, if we put our minds to it, we can kind of chameleon and turn into a death metal band or we could be like the Carpenters.
So, we just have to decide, come together and make the decision, like, ‘All right, which way we want to go? … Which way are we going to turn the wheel?’ And this time we did it to make this party record.”
