Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana) to release new metal album this month
On the heels of sharing the debut track from his fictional band Dream Widow, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has revealed that he will release an entire Dream Widow album to accompany upcoming horror-comedy film, Studio 666, which arrives on February 25.
Asked by Rolling Stone if the record will be released in conjunction with the aforementioned film, Grohl says, "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."
Describing some of the new material, Grohl offers, "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 [doom-metal pioneers] Trouble; some of it sounds like Corrosion of Conformity; some of it has a Kyuss vibe."
