According to reports, Dave Grohl told the crowd at Rock in Rio that they'll be starting work on their new record "next week".

Foo Fighters have told fans when they'll start recording their new album.

The Learn To Fly rockers released their ninth studio album Concrete and Gold back in 2017, and embarked on a worldwide tour soon after, including a headline slot on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage.

But after teasing that work was taking place for its follow-up, Dave Grohl and co have now confirmed they will be headed to the studio next week to record it.

As reported by NME, during their set at Brazil's Rock in Rio Festival on Saturday (28 September), the frontman said: “I don’t know when we’ll be back down here again, but we will," before adding: "We go home next week and we start making a new Foo Fighters record. It’s good, it’s good.”

Rock in Rio was eventful for several reasons this year, as it also played host to Tenacious D's cover of a Nirvana classic.

The same night saw the Tribute rockers play a set at the festival treated fans to a rendition of the grunge band's Smells Like Teen Spirit anthem.

The performance was a duet with local artist Júnior Groovador, which came about after Jack Black shared his bass version of the track on Facebook in the Forró party music style.
