Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett told FasterLouder last week that the band was getting closer to hitting the studio to record its eighth album, saying, “We haven’t officially started, but we’re getting underway soon.” He added that frontman and leader Dave Grohl had a lot of “interesting” ideas about what direction the disc would take and how it would be recorded.

Shiflett explained, “I can’t go into too much detail, but . . . I’m excited about it. Dave’s got a bunch of new songs and the way that we’re gonna make the new record — like, the approach for it — is gonna be pretty f***ing fun. And different. I feel like Dave’s always looking for ways . . . to keep things exciting and keep things inspired and fun. I think he’s got some good ideas for this next one.”

Foo Fighters recorded their last album, 2011′s Wasting Light, in Grohl’s garage, playing as much of the music as possible live to analog tape, instead of recording digitally into a computer.

Foo Fighters went on an extended break last October after touring behind Wasting Light so that Grohl could work on his documentary, Sound City, which came out in February.
