Dave Grohl says the house Foo Fighters recorded new album is haunted

Foo Fighters is finishing their upcoming album and Dave Grohl revealed that the house they were recording was haunted and he can prove. The place is a mansion in California built in 40’s. That has a disturbing history that they only discovered after strange things happened.


Dave Grohl said about the haunted house:

“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.”

“And we’d fucking zero in on sounds within that. And we didn’t hear any voices or anything really decipherable. But something was happening.”

After that, they set up a baby monitor to capture any mysterious ghost:

“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. I set it up overnight so we could 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 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 fucking 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.”

“We just finished making a record. Some of those songs, the best ones happen in 45 minutes. Then there’s other songs — there’s a riff on the new record I’ve been working on for 25 years. The first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle.”
