A couple months back, when the news first started to trickle out that the Foo Fighters were ending their hiatus, Dave Grohl gave an interview and said:
"We're doing something that nobody knows about, it's fucking rad. We begin recording soon, but we're doing it in a way that no-one's done before and we're writing the album in a way that I don't think has been done before."But after that, we didn't hear any details about what was happening. But, earlier this week, a photo was Tweeted of Dave Grohl riding the Brown Line in Chicago, and it set off a semi-manhunt in the city to find him...
Friend of mine's brother sent him this via text a few minutes ago. Grohl's in Chicago, on the Brown Line. pic.twitter.com/CHhCKj4zSU— Jim Hanke (@jimhanke) January 21, 2014
Well, someone DID find him, at a bar, and according to this source, which has been published by NME:
"They've recorded the [new album] in about 12 different cities and they wanted to work with the producer Steve Albini, who owns the studio [in Chicago]"
Is the cat really out of the bag? One album, a dozen cities, 12 studios? It does sound like something Dave Grohl and Butch Vig would dream up. Plus if fits the "has been done before" quote.
But now the question becomes...what cities? We know Chicago, which is close to Madison, WI...where Butch Vig has history...just saying.
