Foo Fighters have announced STUDIO 666, a new horror/comedy film that the band will star in, which is set for release in the US in February 2022.

STUDIO 666 will see Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee move into an Encino mansion to record their 10th album, but once inside, supernatural forces will "threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band."

Grohl said of the film, "After decades of ridiculous music videos and numerous music documentaries under our collective belts, it was finally time to take it to the next level… A full length feature horror comedy film. Like most things Foo, STUDIO 666 began with a far fetched idea that blossomed into something bigger than we ever imagined possible. Filmed at the same house where we recorded our latest album Medicine at Midnight (told you that place was haunted!) we wanted to recapture the classic magic that all of our favourite rock and roll movies had, but with a twist: hilarious gore that fucking ROCKS. And now, with the help of Tom Ortenberg and the team at Open Road Films we can finally let this cat out of the bag after keeping it our best kept secret for two years. Be ready to laugh, scream, and headbang in your popcorn. STUDIO 666 will fuck you up."

Director BJ McDonnell added, "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."

Foo Fighters' STUDIO 666 film is set for release in the US on 25 February 2022. An international release date is expected to be announced soon.
