Foo Fighters bassist Nate Mendel says the band is already crafting new music despite just releasing Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in September 2007. "We're already working on songs. Got a handful of 'em already that we're working on at soundcheck, which has never really happened, so we're getting a headstart," Mendel tells the Rock Radio. "The band's in a good place. Everyone's really excited about it, excited about making music, so we're already getting going." With the band on tour through the end of the year promoting Echoes, which won the Grammy for Best Rock Album earlier this month, the Foos' next album likely won't be out until mid-2009.
