Ghosts almost ruined the new Foo Fighters Album

Foo Fighters have claimed that the recording of their tenth album was disrupted by mischievous ghosts.

The rock giants decamped to a 1940s house in Encino, California, but immediately realised the “vibe was off” as their instruments became out of tune and tracks they recorded were mysteriously deleted.

“When we walked into the house in Encino, I knew the vibes were definitely off but the sound was fucking on,” said Grohl. “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.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. But just like weird open mic noises. Nobody playing an instrument or anything like that, just an open mic recording a room.”

He continued: “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.”

The band eventually set up a baby monitor to capture any mysterious goings on when they weren’t there – but are sworn to secrecy about their findings.
