Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl has revealed that he is planning to release a new thrash metal album on February 25 to coincide with the release of the band’s horror-comedy film “Studio 666.” This news comes after the band recently released a thrashy new song titled “March Of The Insane” under the name “Dream Widow.” That fictional band will play a role in the aforementioned movie.
Grohl told Rolling Stone the following:
“It will be the lost album. It’ll be the album they [Dream Widow] were making before [Dream Widow‘s singer] fucking killed the entire band.”
He also added the following about release plans:
“I mean, I work fast, but fuck, this deadline is going to kill me. Yes, I’ll get it out for the movie. By February 25th, there will be a Dream Widow record.”
Grohl went on to say that the record was inspired by him growing up as “a fucking Eighties thrash metal kid”:
“I have my favorites. You’ll hear a lot of those influences in ‘Lacrimus dei Ebrius‘ [a 13-minute metal epic performed in the film] because for that song, I put maybe four or five of these sections together in this big, long thing. Some of it sounds like Trouble; some of it sounds like Corrosion Of Conformity; some of it has a Kyuss vibe.”
