mastermind Dave Grohl
shared a few fresh tidbits regarding the band's new album, confirming that the musical part is done, once again stressing the unprecedented approach the group took."We haven't really disclosed exactly what we are doing,"
he told BBC Radio 1
. "I know what it sounds like and I honestly think the entire concept is really going to take people by surprise and it sounds nuts.""We recorded something the other day that's unlike anything we've ever done and it starts with a fuse and then it explodes,"
Dave added (via NME
Performing at Howard Stern
's 60th birthday party alongside Slash
and Steven Tyler
, Grohl briefly chatted with the popular radio host, also touching on the new album."We're making a record now, it's gonna blow people away, it's gonna be f--king great and we're doing it - nobody knows it, but I've been eight months on it already, nobody knows."
Asked if all the music's been written, the musician replied: "Music's done."
During the rest of the chat, Dave discussed an interesting subject of dropping out of high school. As Grohl explained it, his mother was supportive of such a decision, despite being a teacher herself."My mother was a public school teacher for 35 years and she understood kids. She looked at me and she knew I wasn't a complete idiot and I was super passionate about playing music so she was like, 'You know what, you're not f--king - you're not doing any good at fluorescent lights at French class all day long.' My mother is the coolest mother ever,"
the frontman said, adding that his father on the other hand was "f--king pissed."
