Dave Grohl has said he has evidence that The Foo Fighters were haunted when they recorded for their upcoming album.
The Foo Fighters were recording in a Californian mansion build in the 1940s. As it turns out the mansion has a dark history, The band found out about this after hearing things go bump in the night after their studio sessions.
Dave tells the story in an interview in Mojo:
“When we walked into the house in Encino, I knew the vibes were definitely off but the sound was fucking on,” “We started working there and it wasn’t long before things started happening. We would come back to the studio the next day and all of the guitars would be detuned. Or the setting we’d put on the [sound]board, all of them had gone back to zero. We would open up a Pro Tools session and tracks would be missing. There were some tracks that were put on there that we didn’t put on there. … Nobody playing an instrument or anything like that, just an open mic recording a room.”
Grohl added that the recordings didn’t include “any voices or anything really decipherable.” But, Grohl said, he set up a baby monitor “to see if there was anyone there or anyone was coming to fuck with us. … At first, nothing. And right around the time we thought we were [being] ridiculous and we were out of our minds, we started to see things on the nest cam that we couldn’t explain.”
The history of the house can’t be revealed as Grohl Said “When we found out about the history of the house, I had to sign a fucking nondisclosure agreement with the landlord because he’s been trying to sell the place,” he said. ” So, I can’t give away what happened there in the past … but these multiple occurrences over a short period of time made us finish the album as quickly as we could.”
In an interview with Kerrang about the upcoming album he said “I’m fucking excited for people to hear it and I can’t wait to jump on that fucking stage to play it,”
