While the Grohl is away, the Chris Shiflett will form a side project with his brothers...
Rolling Stone is reporting that Foo Fighters and former No Use for a Name guitarist Chris Shiflett went into the studio while Dave Grohl was messing around with the Queens and recorded 20 songs with his Face to Face brothers: bassist Scott Shiflett and drummer Pete Parada.
Chris told some hack at the seminal yankie rock mag Rolling Stone: "It's guitar pop, it's not nearly as heavy as Foo Fighters stuff. And there's some stuff that's pretty mellow and vibey. I'd been wanting to do a side project for a long time but I was a total procrastinator. I had been kicking around these song ideas and the break finally just kicked me in the ass enough to go out and start working on that."
In keeping with the NUFAN idea the band is yet to be named.
For nerdy factfans, the tracks were produced by Chad Blinman who's done Face to Face and Get Up Kids. It was recorded at Los Angeles' Sunset Sound and West Beach studios and Chris is currently finishing off the vocals in Blinmans home studio.
