Dave Grohl has revealed that he is heading back to America to start work on a new Foo Fighters album today (February 21).

The frontman has been in the UK this week promoting his new movie "Sound City" and also played a gig with his new supergroup, the Sound City Players, at London's Kentish Town Forum on Tuesday (February 19). Speaking at the Brit Awards last night, Grohl revealed that he is now on his way home and will start work on the next Foo Fighters album, NME reports.

Following Grohl's numerous side-projects and claims made by the frontman during their headline set at Leeds Festival in 2012 many Foo Fighters fans were prepared to spend a long time waiting for the band's next album.

However, speaking to host James Corden during the ceremony, Grohl stated:

"I return to Los Angeles tomorrow to start work on a Foo Fighters record," Grohl revealed during a chat with host James Corden.

However, it does not appear that the album will be on stereos any time soon with Grohl's only word on a release date being "eventually".

Grohl previously hinted at his "awesome plans" for the next Foo Fighters album, stating:

"We have a plan, we know exactly what's coming next and I have the music for the next record and we're going to start working on it once we finish doing all this stuff. We have really awesome, big plans for the next album and I'm really excited about it."

Foo Fighters released their last album "Wasting Light" in 2011.

    Awesome. Wasting Light was incredible. No doubt they'll deliver the goods again!
    Wasting Light is my favorite from them, and normally that's not the case with new releases, but it was amazing.
    We must be hearing different music. This shit is terrible.
    You're just sad cause there isn't any fresh pot. Someone get this idiot a fresh pot. His opinion on great music has turned to shit!
    You're also an idiot as well. Because 'cause' doesn't mean 'because'. Some people don't like Foo Fighters, get over it.
    Haha you're seriously going to try to call me out on that? Well, dude, "cause" was being used as an abbreviated colloquial form of "because", but I know that is not the formally-accepted usage of it (due to Grammar-Nazi's like yourself). At the least I should have thrown in the ' before the c to show the difference in "cause" and "'cause". Maybe that way, just maybe, you wouldn't have gotten your little panties in a bunch.
    And calling the guy an idiot due to his opinion is acceptable? You should really stop making hypocritical comments. I'm not a 'Grammar Nazi'. I just hate seeing the likes of you destroying the English language, someone I know does the same, he keeps typing 'cause' instead of 'because'. It's ****ing annoying. By the way, I don't have my 'panties' in a bunch. Bloody Americans.
    post a link to your favorite Foo Fighters song. I want to learn. I want to accept. I want to listen. Help me out.
    Look up 'all my life' and think heavily of increasing musical taste. Pick up a guitar, slap yourself, and jam!
    I was being serious.
    Its called youtube go find it yourself, its not hard.
    It kinda is.
    Everlong Walk White Limo Bride Burning My Hero Monkey Wrench Learn To Fly Times Like These Rope Best Of You Pretender .... Enough yet?
    metallica have made their share of shit records. i listen to some of their stuff and just think.....i coul have done better. but, foo fighters are insanely overrated. everything sounds the same
    Look guys, this man right here is never gonna learn. By posting back to him we are giving him attention he doesn't deserve. sykest70 - I am sorry you are not musically eared. Please rinse and repeat tracks until you have taste/rigor mortis. Good day!
    Fuck I still haven't even got the last one... DAMMIT GROHL SLOW THE FUCK DOWN
    His music making speed really is putting every other musician to shame
    I think it was Jack White said musicians ought to put out an album a year. Grohl's up there as pretty damn prolific.
