Foo Fighters is one of the most popular bands in the world with 12 Grammys to their name but could they now be chasing an Oscar with the release of their new horror film?

Loosely based on the making of their landmark 10th album, ‘Medicine At Midnight’, in Studio 666 the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock history to record music.  Once in the house, Dave Grohl finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band.

Directed by BJ McDonnell, Studio 666 stars Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett & Rami Jaffee and the cast also includes Whitney Cummings, Leslie Grossman, Will Forte, Jenna Ortega and Jeff Garlin.

“Yep…we actually went and made a big, loud, bloody horror movie. Because…why the hell not?” said Dave Grohl.  “After keeping Studio 666 our dirty little secret for years, we’re so fucking excited to bring it to you guys for a full-on theatrical release. This thing was MEANT for the big screen. We hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it.”

Grohl recently told NME he hopes to release a full album of thrash metal music after last week’s release of a track by the fictional band Dream Widow, which features on the Studio 666 soundtrack.

Director BJ McDonnell said: “STUDIO 666 is a perfect combination of all things I love. Rock, horror, and comedy all tied together in a very thrilling motion picture. I am so excited to have teamed up with the Foo Fighters to create an old school “Band” movie. It’s been years since we’ve seen something like the Beatles “Help!”, The Monkees “Head”, or “KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park”. Take that 60’s / 70’s old school band film fun, mix it with horror and STUDIO 666 is born! I am so ecstatic for audiences of film and music to come together and enjoy our film.”

Not only are the boys in the band busy releasing the movie Studio 666, they also recently shared a brand new video for their song featured on the new ‘Fraggle Rock’ revival series which you can watch here. 

Meanwhile KISS’s Paul Stanley has expressed his interest in collaborating with Foo Fighters which you can read more about here.
