Dave Grohl describes the upcoming Foo Fighters Studio 666 like a “movie movie, ”adding that the group were astonished when they saw the trailer for the first time.
Inspired by the experience of recording their latest album Medicine at midnight in a famous haunted Los Angeles mansion, Studio 666 follows a group of musicians victims of supernatural forces. The exact details are unclear, however, as Grohl refuses to detail the plot.
“The singer went crazy and murdered his whole band because of creative differences,” Grohl said in a new interview with Mojo. “There’s no other group stupid enough to do this. It’s absolutely crazy. … Some scenes, they’re so epic, man. Just when you think we couldn’t think of anything more ridiculous. … This will really, really blow your mind.
The outlook has not always been so rosy. Grohl admits the Foo Fighters have struggled to regain their momentum after the pandemic forced production to shut down.
“We shot most of the film. All we had to film was basically the few end scenes. Then months and months went by, ”he said. “We would have meetings to discuss how we could possibly end this movie with all of the new restrictions and compliance. “How the fuck are we going to do this?” ”
“So we came up with a plan,” Grohl added, “and that six days of filming turned into about three weeks, because of all the new regulations that are really slowing things down. We were one of the first productions. in Los Angeles after the COVID case We did it safely and we got there.
This latest push came after the first trailer was assembled, Grohl said. “We watched that trailer and we were like, ‘Holy shit! “I mean, honestly speaking, way beyond anyone’s expectations,” he said. “It’s a movie movie. We were all like, ‘Oh my God, let’s end this!’ “
Studio 666 is scheduled to premiere on February 25 and tickets are on sale now.
