Dave Grohl confirms he’ll release 'Dream Widow' EP this week

music news 22/03/2022

Dave Grohl is set to release a metal EP later this week - but it's not a Foo Fighters or Grohl EP.

Grohl recorded a metal album as their fictional band from their recent horror-comedy film Studio 666, and will release the digital version on Friday, March 25th. 

Last month, the EP's first single  'March of the Insane' was released, which is the song Grohl finds on tape in the haunted mansion that they're staying in in the film.

Before Studio 666 was released, Grohl told Variety:

"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 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.”

The EP will be released digitally on March 25th, and a physical release is set to come out later this year.
