A Foo Fighters documentary has been announced for release later in 2011. Spitfire Pictures and Academy Award winner James Moll will produce the documentary, which will “chronicle the entire history of the Foo Fighters from the cassette demos [Dave] Grohl recorded during his tenure as Nirvana’s drummer through their ascent to [becoming] one of the biggest rock bands on the planet.” The Foos will release an as-yet-untitled new album this spring, which lead singer Dave Grohl says will mark a return to the band’s hard rocking roots. “There’s 11 songs and front to back, there’s not one sleepy ballad,” Grohl says of the album, which they recorded in a makeshift studio set up in his garage. “The process was so simple. We entered into this project with a direction. The first song we started recording, the tape just started shredding.” Fans of the band in the US can now get a preview of the the upcoming new album, by texting “TASTE” to 66937 to get a FREE new snippet of the Foos music for their mobile phones. The band is also scheduled to Headline NME Awards Big Gig 2011, at Wembley Arena, on February 25th.
