Dave Grohl can’t wait for fans to hear the Foo Fighters’ new album.

The group is gearing up for the release of the follow-up to 2017’s Concrete and Gold, and the rocker confirmed to Kerrang! magazine: “We just finished another f**king record, and I’m so f**king proud of it. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever done.”

He continued: “I’m excited for people to hear it and I can’t wait to jump on that┬ástage to play it. There are choruses on this record that 50┬áthousand people are gonna sing, and it’s gonna bring everyone’s hearts together in that moment. And that’s what it’s all about.”

The group is set to celebrate its 25th anniversary by revisiting the cities it played in the U.S. in 1995 and, reflecting on the band’s journey until now, Grohl added: “Honestly, it doesn’t feel like we’ve been doing this for 25 f**king years. It’s funny, some people measure time in days and months and years. But with me, I measure time in musical terms. When I think about 1995 to ’96, that was one thing. When I think of ’90 to ’99, that’s another, and so on.

He continued: “I see my life in these markers that are represented by our music. I feel like I’ve been writing this big story, and specific lyrics and songs relate to specific things that happened to me at those times.”

A release date for the new record has yet to be announced.
