Foo Fighters Ditch Hiatus to Work With Butch Vig

Getting the opportunity to work with the legendary producer who was involved in Nirvana's 1991 album, the Dav Grohl-fronted band meet again for a new album.

Rockers the have ended their hiatus after landing the chance to work with producer Butch Vig in the studio. Frontman has abandoned his plans to concentrate on other projects after getting the opportunity to reteam with the mastermind behind the iconic "" album.

As a result, Foo Fighters' seventh album will mark the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's "Nevermind", which Vig produced in 1991. Grohl reveals he and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins have already started work on the band's new material and work on the new album started on Monday, March 8 in the frontman's garage recording studio. Grohl tells Rolling Stone, "I think this could be our heaviest album yet."

The announcement comes just four months after Grohl revealed he and his bandmates were taking a break from each other after 15 years, claiming last year's greatest hits record marked the end of an era. He said, "The band decided to take a break, not because we wanted to stop making music, but because we thought the world needed to take a break from us."

"This greatest hits record, that's the end of something... It's time to move on into this next chapter or another phase. Maybe it will be different in whatever way. I don't know. It's nice to not know what's going to happen next. We're going over to do some shows in Europe, but, after that, it's like I don't even know when I'm going to see these guys. So it's kind of weird."
