Rumor: Foo Fighters To Travel The World In The Process Of Making New Album

It’s no secret that Foo Fighters are in the process of recording their eighth album, but they might not be going about it in a traditional manner. Last week, the band posted a picture of master tapes for the LP, which frontman Dave Grohl said last year is being recorded “in a way that no-one’s done before.”

Now, details are surfacing about just what that might entail. According to a report from Triple M via a fan who ran into Grohl in a Chicago bar, the new Foo Fighters record is being written and recorded in twelve different cities around …

STREAM: Eight Songs From Dave Grohl’s Pre-Nirvana Band Uncovered

Eight songs from Dave Grohl‘s pre-Nirvana band Dain Bramage have been uncovered by Antiquiet.

The band was comprised of Grohl, Rueben Radding and Dave Smith. They formed in December of 1985 and had a good two year run before Grohl left the band in pursuit of another band called Scream. Dain Bramage tried to continue without Grohl but even Radding admitted, ”After you’ve spent a couple years with Dave Grohl as your drummer it’s easy to feel like no other drummer exists.”

To this day, the band members remain close. An image of the members was tweeted from

Foo Fighters Make Their Return to the Stage at a Pizza Place

Last night, Foo Fighters played their first show in over a year — at a pizza place. Proving they’re still the basically coolest band ever, Foo Fighters performed 23 songs for a crowd of about 200 people at Rock & Roll Pizza in Moorpark, CA.

The Foos likely viewed the surprise gig as a warm up for the pair of big Mexico City shows they’re playing this week with The National but considering the band played a series of shows at fans’ garages surrounding the release of 2011′s Wasting Light, I wouldn’t be surprised if the band actually went …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Filmage: The Story of Descendents / ALL’

The guys in Descendents all knew that they weren’t cut out for the glamorous punk rock scene of Hollywood. Hell, the guys were too busy drinking coffee, farting, fishing, and playing mad scientist to worry about styling their hair and getting leather jackets. That didn’t stop them from changing rock music forever.

In spirit of our recent interview with Descendents’ drummer Bill Stevenson, Under The Gun Review has received an advanced copy of Filmage:

Dave Grohl And Taylor Hawkins’ Chevy Metal Cover “Under Pressure”

How many side projects do the men of Foo Fighters have? Only a mystical man on a mountain can answer that, but Taylor Hawkin’s Chevy Metal performed at the Costa Mesa Fairgrounds this weekend and patrons got a special surprise, Dave Grohl.

Grohl joined his Foo Fighters mate onstage for some covers of Van Halen’s “Panama,” The Rolling Stones’ “Miss You,” and The Knacks’ “My Sharona.” You can check out their cover of Queen’s “Under Pressure” below. It comes after a lot of rambling by Grohl.

Cover bands and side projects aside, there’s new Foo Fighters coming soon. Hawkins told …
