Foo Fighters are well on their way to making their eighth studio album, according to a new interview with Dave Grohl done by a U.K. radio station. Asked about the band's progress on a new disc, Grohl revealed, "Well, I'll tell you, we have been in our studio writing and in the past few weeks, we've written an album. And we are going to make this album in a way that no one's ever done before, and we're pretty excited about it."

Grohl admitted that the band hasn't started recording yet and suggested that a 2014 release date is likely, adding, "It's a little way off -- it's not ready to happen right now, but I think next year is going to be a really big year for the Foo Fighters without question. It's going to be great, I can't wait."
