Still recovering from their double winnings, Foo Fighters are sparing time to write songs for their next album while touring.
Foo Fighters have begun working on their Grammy-winning album "Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace" that was released last year. They have written a couple of songs but due to an extensive tour throughout this year, they may face difficulty finding time to record them.
"We're already working on songs," bassist Nate Mendel told Billboard.com. "We've got a handful of them that we're working on at sound check, which has never really happened, so we're getting a good start. The band's in a good place; everyone's really excited about making music, so we're already getting going."
They have hit the road for a number of U.S., European and Asian dates that will stretch up to July. The rock band have just announced the first round of a new leg of U.S. tour that will so far visit Seattle, W.A. on July 9, Portland, O.R. on July 10 and Morrison, C.O. on July 14.
"Well, we're gonna need a break," he says. "It's fun making the music; it's when you have to go out and promote it that it's work. So we're gonna be in a weird place - we were on this last record, too. It's like, 'We just got done touring, but we're ready to record. What do we do?'"
"You can't record it and leave it in a vault 'cause it'll get leaked, and it feels weird to just sit and wait arbitrarily for six months. We'll probably find ourselves in the same position again, excited to record but knowing that you've got a year of touring at the end of it."
