American alternative rock band, The Foo Fighters, are all set to release their latest album ‘Wasting light’ this month. The front man of the band Dave Grohl, who founded the band in the year 1994, went on to reveal that the inspiration behind the album came from retro acts ABBA and the Bee Gees.


Grohl said that the album was recorded in the garage of his residence to give a rugged and unfinished feel to it. The former Nirvana drummer is known for creating the most spectacular choruses in the past, and seems to have worked his magic yet again.

However, this time Grohl did not hesitate to give the credit and said that it was from ABBA that he got the inspiration to write the catchiest choruses. Grohl said that he indeed liked dissonant and distorted rock n roll, but he loved the way the choruses of the Bee Gees and ABBA – which get bigger and bigger.

The vocalist went on to add that he loves the anthemic choruses and the feeling of releases that one can connect with. Grohl added that when ever he found a big chorus, he would use it as the pre-chorus and then try to attempt to write some thing bigger. The Album ‘Wasting Light’ is all set to release on 11th April in UK and 12th April in the US.

The Foof Fighters have been around for more than 15 years, and have won several Grammy Awards for their songs and videos.'
