DAVE GROHL’s DREAM WIDOW Metal Album Gets A Release Date

Dave Grohl's metal album under the moniker of the fictional band Dream Widow from the Foo Fighters' feature film "Studio 666" will be made available later this month.

It appears that Dave Grohl’s metal album under the moniker of the fictional band DREAM WIDOW from the FOO FIGHTERS’ feature film “Studio 666” will be made available digitally next Friday, March 25. Variety also reports that a physical release is planned for later in the year.

In “Studio 666”, FOO FIGHTERS take over an Encino mansion to start the recording process for their next studio album. Once settled into the house, Grohl discovers their surroundings are in fact teeming with evil, supernatural forces stemming from the studio’s previous residents, metal band DREAM WINDOW.

“I wind up finding this creepy basement. And I go into the basement, I find this tape by a band [DREAM WIDOW] from 25 years ago that recorded there,” Grohl told Howard Stern. “And there’s this song that, if recorded and completed, the fucking demon in the house is unleashed, and then, whatever, all hell breaks loose.”

Grohl continued: “The singer (of DREAM WIDOW) went crazy and murdered his whole band because of creative differences… We come in 25 years later to record, having no idea what happened 25 years ago, and I start becoming possessed by the spirit of the guy from 25 years ago and the spirit of the house. But this song, ‘March Of The Insane’, this is their lost record. This is the record they were making before their singer murdered [them].”

Dave tells Rolling Stone about the DREAM WIDOW record: “It will be the lost album. It’ll be the album they were making before he fucking killed the entire band.” According to Grohl, “some of it sounds like [doom-metal pioneers] TROUBLE; some of it sounds like CORROSION OF CONFORMITY; some of it has a KYUSS vibe.”
