Dave Grohl Says New Foo Fighters Album Is 'About Reinventing the Process'
Dave Grohl has been talking about the Foo Fighters' forthcoming eighth studio album, NME reports.

Speaking to Billboard, Grohl said the album is due for release in November, shortly after the broadcast of an eight-part HBO series "Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways." The two projects are closely linked.

He said: "We could just go make another record in the studio, hit the road and sell a bunch of T-shirts. It's all about reinventing the process."

To make the album, Grohl, along with bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear have visited studios in eight cities, recording one song in each location. The accompanying series will see Grohl interviewing musicians tied to a particular city including Buddy Guy, Dolly Parton, Chuck D, Gibby Haynes, Allen Toussaint and Gary Clark Jr.

"These recording studios are hallowed ground; they're churches and monuments to me," continued Grohl. "History has been made in (dives) all over the country."

The cities visited are Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, Tennessee, New Orleans, Seattle, Washington, D.C. and New York - all locations with strong connections to the band. Grohl wrote the lyrics for the songs on the album during the last day of each session, hoping to be inspired by the experiences and interviews he'd done.

The band's most-recent album "Wasting Light" was released in April 2011.
