Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters spoke to Spinner about his new project, Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants as well as what is next for the Foos.

It's a little too early to know exactly. We've just been learning songs and making some demos. Pretty much everything we've learned so far has been pretty upbeat and rocking and I think it sounds pretty good. I've read that Dave (Grohl) said It's gonna be the heaviest Foo Fighters record ever and I think it'll definitely be a lot more rocking than the last couple. Butch Vig (who produced Nirvana's 'Nevermind') is gonna produce the record. Dave built a studio at his house and we'll be recording it there. I believe the tracking room is in fact his garage! I should probably sell it as going back to basics. The truth is it's gonna be a world class studio. We'll have a bunch of good gear. But we'll definitely be going back to basics.

The Foo Fighters last released Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007.
