Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl Planning To Release Full Thrash Metal Album Alongside “Studio 666” Film

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.”
