Foo Fighters Rumored to Be Recording New Album in Multiple Locations
A change of scenery can often be good for a band when recording their new music, but is it possible that Foo Fighters are taking that idea to levels that no band has done before? Rumors are flying that the unique way in which the band is recording their new album is by laying down each individual track in a different recording studio.
Last year, Dave Grohl teased that the band was “going to make this album in a way that no one’s ever done before.” Now a rumor published in Billboard and posted to Twitter by an account named FooArchive suggests that Grohl has been scouting studios in 12 different cities to record their next disc.
The rumor goes on to state that Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Seattle are among the definite cities where the band will record music for their next album. Though it’s not uncommon for acts to record in one or two different studios, especially established bands, the idea of having as many as 12 different studio recording experiences is pretty much unparalleled.
While nothing is confirmed as of yet, Grohl does have a history of recording in several different cities and has even had the band record at his home basement studio in Virginia just to get away from Los Angeles at one point in the band’s career.
Grohl has also shown his fascination for recording studios over the years, most recently directing the documentary ‘Sound City’ about the historic studio where Nirvana recorded their ‘Nevermind’ album.
There is at least one precedent for this possible approach by the Foos, as Ted Nugent once recorded live versions of 10 different songs in 10 different cities for his ‘Intensities in 10 Cities’ album.
