Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has teased the release of a new album next year.
Taylor has confirmed that the group has been working on new music and ‘should’ be dropping their 10th studio album by 2020.
He said: ‘Well, from what I’ve heard from our fearless leader Dave Grohl, he has a lot of demos that he’s worked on and I think we’ll start, once this tour is over. This little UK-ish run.
‘I think not too soon after that we’ll start the process of putting the songs together as a band.
‘It’s a long process, we do a lot of demoing and stuff, but I think that we’ll have, I’m hoping, I think we’ll have a new record by next year. We should.’
The band, known for Everlong, is playing the upcoming Reading and Leeds festival, and much to fans’ excitement, will be playing ‘a lot’ of material from the debut self-titled album that was released in 1995.
Although lead singer Dave Grohl has been working on ‘a lot of demos’, the 47-year-old is keen to play Aurora and There Is Nothing Left To Lose.
Taylor added while on Rock Sound’s YouTube channel: ‘I wouldn’t mind playing Aurora, and I wouldn’t mind playing anything off the first record. Before I was in the band. I think we’ll do a lot of the first record.
‘The Reading and Leeds festivals are very important to the band.’
Meanwhile, Dave revealed the high possibility that Them Crooked Vultures – his group created with Led Zepellin’s John Paul Jones and Queen of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme – is getting back together.
He told the Guardian: ‘Technically we’re still a band. We practise once every decade, and we’re coming up on another decade aren’t we?
‘I don’t have any official news but there’s always something cooking.’
However, the multi-talented artist still struggles at the concept of working with a legendary star like John Paul Jones.
Dave said: ‘There are times when you’ve relaxed into a sofa and you’re not thinking about his time in Led Zeppelin.
‘Then you start playing and you’re immediately reminded that you are a musical speck compared to this man. It’s still hard to accept that I got to play in a band with that guy.’
Foo Fighters will be playing at Reading and Leeds festival over the 23-25 August weekend.
