Grohl has been busy drumming with side project Them Crooked Vultures and Hawkins has been involved with his own project called Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders. But he says this has proven to recharge them as a band.
But while the album is still in the beginning phase, Hawkins says “we have a very strong start and we’re excited. They’re really cool songs. I know its going to be great.”
