Taylor Hawkins - Foo Fighters begin eighth album

The Foo Fighters have started work on their new album.

The 'My Hero' band's drummer, Taylor Hawkins, said work on their eighth album has begun with frontman Dave Grohl's brain ''working overtime, as usual''.

Taylor told Billboard magazine: ''We're getting started. We're getting our ideas together. Dave has got a lot of great ideas, both musically and conceptually - none that I can speak of at this moment, but it's gonna be great. It's gonna be cool.''

Dave has previously said he has some ''crazy'' ideas for the album, which will follow up 2011's 'Wasting Light'.

He previously said: ''I have a crazy idea of what I want to do with the next record and how we record it. It won't be a conventional record.''

The singer - who completes the group with Taylor, Nate Mendel

Pat Smear and Chris Shiflett - has also said he doesn't think the band have written their definitive track yet.

He said: ''You always want every album to be the best one you've ever done, and you always think you haven't done your best one.

''Although some people may feel we have, I still think we haven't written our 'Hotel California' or our 'Bohemian Rhapsody' or whatever.

''You should always be a little scared ... Every time you start a record, you have to be, like, ready to f***ing' kill yourself or it's not gonna be any good.''
