Foo Fighters are in the studio, working on their follow-up to 2011’s ‘Wasting Light’

It doesn’t look like Foo Fighters fans will have to wait much longer for new music, as frontman Dave Grohl and company have confirmed that they’re in the studio, working on their follow-up to 2011’s Grammy Award-winning release “Wasting Light.”

The grunge group dropped the news by posting a photo on their official Instagram account to show their work, featuring progress, which features five boxes of master tapes and reels.

According to Grohl, the band is recording the upcoming album in a way never been done before. Speaking with Rolling Stone last fall, Grohl stated, “We’re doing something that nobody knows about… We’re doing it in a way that no one’s done before and we’re writing the album in a way that I don’t think has been done before.”

Meanwhile, the Foos are already starting to book shows. The band will be one of the headliners at this year’s Firefly Music Festival, which will happen June 19-22 at Dover International Speedway in Dover, Del. It’s likely the first of many 2014 appearances for the Foo Fighters, especially if they release the upcoming album before the year is through.
