It comes after Dave Grohl revealed the band's belief that the recording sessions for their 10th studio album were marred by paranormal activity.

As reported by NME, frontman Dave Grohl told Mojo magazine: "When we walked into the house in Encino, I knew the vibes were definitely off but the sound was f***ing 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 board, all of them had gone back to zero."

"It got to the point where I brought one of those nest cams that I still have at home, for when my kids would sleep in their cribs," added the Everlong singer.

"I set it up overnight so we could see if there was anyone there or anyone was coming to f**k with us.

"At first, nothing. And right around the time we thought we were ridiculous and we were out of our minds, we started to see things on the nest cam that we couldn't explain.

"Then when we found out about the history of the house, I had to sign a f***ing non-disclosure agreement with the landlord because he's trying to sell the place.

"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."
