Dream Window features in Dave Grohl's new horror comedy film, Studio 666.
Following the release of the mysterious thrash metal track 'March of the Insane' last month, Dave Grohl has announced a full album created under the moniker Dream Window. The fictitious outfit is featured in the plot of the Foo Fighters new horror comedy film, Studio 666.
The film sees the Foos at a studio in Encino, Los Angeles where they put the finishing touches on their tenth studio album, Medicine at Midnight. While creative differences run rife, Grohl becomes possessed by the spirits of Dream Window, jeopardising both the album and the lives of his bandmates.
Throughout the film, the group learns that Dream Window suffered the same fate decades earlier leading to a never released "lost album." As reported by Variety, that album will now be shared digitally this friday (March 25), with a physical release slated for later this year.
With distorted guitar lines and lyrics that you'd sooner expect from Slayer or Motörhead featured on the lead single, the new album will certainly be a departure from the typical Foo Fighters' material.
Though the LP won't be typical fare for the Foos, it isn't Grohl's first time experimenting with metal. In 2004, Grohl released the album Probot, a side project featuring metal's heavy hitters including Venom’s Cronos, Soulfly’s Max Cavalera, King Diamond and Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister.
This year the Foo Fighters are celebrating their 27 years as a band with a 2022 world tour. The trek sees the classic outfit in North and South America, the UK and Europe.
Check out Paul Nolan's interview with Grohl from the February issue of Hot Press where the veteran rocker discusses the new film, horror classics, Liam Gallagher, Lemmy and more.
“There’s a lot of really choice moments!” the singer said. “But I remember when I read the first draft of the script, I laughed hysterically. I went, ‘Oh my god, they understand our sense of humour, this is great!’ Sometimes it felt like words were being put into your mouth, but I’m glad those were the words given to us. A lot of it is incredibly ridiculous.”
