Frontman Dave Grohl recently announced that the Foo Fighters plan to go back into the studio this September.

In an interview with BBC, the musician said the group has already started working on their seventh studio album as they have just recently begun writing new material.

"Foo Fighters have just started writing and we're going to start recording in September so life is full of music," said Grohl.

The announcement comes as a surprise as Grohl and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme hope to record their second album as Them Crooked Vultures by the end of the summer.

Grohl was interviewed while attending the Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles where he introduced the group Anvil to the stage before they were presented with the award for Best Documentary.

The guitarist/drummer said he was touched by the documentary that was directed by Sacha Gervasi as displayed their struggle to make a living in the music industry.

"I cried like 15 times," he said. "I was touched by that movie so profoundly as a musician. I grew up in suburban Virginia, I'm a high school drop-out, I worked in a furniture warehouse, I played in a punk rock band. There were never any career aspirations."

    Grohl is a high school dropout? I guess that would explain why he doesn't believe that AIDS comes from HIV.

    Give them time I say. I think they're more interesting than the newest Foos stuff. Though the old Foos are classic.

    The Color and shape wasnt such a bad album....although it was a bit soft for my taste dave needs to harden it up a bit

    I only skimmed the article but I dont think it mentions that its also being produced by Butch Vigg, producer of both Nevermind and Siamese Dream...cue the duckboats.

    If you quoted 98musician89 and you're wondering where your comment went, I deleted it so as not to perpetuate the idiocy. Checked.

    Foo Fighters should explore post-hardcore. The old school kind. Its not hard to imagine....songs like everlong have a distinct 90's emo/post-hardcore sound just with more polished production and injected with more pop than the genre ever tolerated.

    Foo fighters are right up there with led Zeppelin and nirvana for me. I'm psyched about this album! Shit man this guys an inspiration for droup outs, burn outs, and kids who just don't give about college. I freaking admire this guy!!!!! Music rocks.

    More like Colour And The Shape, that album is great.

    From what I hear on the radio, it's going to be their heaviest album to date. Gonna be recorded in his garage and all analogue. I'm not interested in TCV, I have a strong dislike for Josh's voice.
