Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl will digitally release his new metal EP, recorded under the moniker Dream Widow, on March 25.
Dream Widow is connected to the Foo Fighters’ recently issued horror-comedy film, Studio 666. In the flick, Grohl and company rent a Los Angeles mansion to record their 10th album, only to discover the space is haunted — it turns out that twenty-five years before, the metal group Dream Widow worked there for an ill-fated project, their singer becoming possessed and murdering his bandmates.
The Dream Widow EP features the recently released “March of the Insane,” which is part of the project Dream Widow were recording in the film. Grohl told Variety that he recorded the Dream Widow EP on his own. saying: “When we started writing the script, we had the idea of there being this epic metal opus that — once completed — would release the demon in the house. I said, ‘Oh, f**k, I’ve got a million riffs.’ So I recorded this 13- or 14-minute long instrumental just by myself that’s very metal, and it’s meant to be from the [fictional] band Dream Widow. Then, I furthered that idea by making a whole record by Dream Widow that would be their lost album that they recorded before they were murdered.”
