Dave Grohl reunites with Krist Novoselic, Butch Vig on new Foos

Dave Grohl is getting the band back together again… well, almost. In the closest thing you’ll ever see to Nirvana’s remnants reuniting, Grohl recently spoke to BBC Radio and divulged that former bandmate and ex-Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic will appear on the upcoming Foo Fighters album. The duo will be working once again with Garbage drummer Butch Vig who will handle production duties on the record.

Vig last worked with Grohl some twenty years ago on that little album called Nevermind. Grohl had this to say about working with Vig and the content of their new material;

This whole project has been really cool. I haven’t made a record with Butch for 20 years. Each song is full on, the whole record is full on. In the 14 songs there’s not one acoustic guitar, there’s not even one in the house.”

Grohl proclaims that 2011 will be the year of the Foos, proclaiming that we wouldn’t be able to “get them out of our hair“.

That’s alright Dave, just as long as you give us ‘Rock n’ Roll Grohl‘ and not ‘Top 40 Dave‘, we’re okay with that.
