Dave Grohl streams Dream Widow thrash metal EP

Dave Grohl is streaming his newly-available thrash metal EP, “Dream Widow.”

The project is featured in the Foo Fighters’ horror-comedy film, “Studio 666”, where the group attempt to record their newest album in the same house where the legendary — and fictional — Dream Widow met its tragic and untimely end.

"The premise of the movie is that we move into this house, I have writer's block, I'm totally uninspired, I can't come up with anything," shared Grohl during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show in February. "And I wind up finding this creepy basement. And I go into the basement, I find this tape by a band from 25 years ago that recorded there. And there's this song that, if recorded and completed, the f***ing demon in the house is unleashed, and then, whatever, all hell breaks loose.

"And we come in 25 years later to record, having no idea what happened 25 years ago, and I start becoming possessed by the spirit of the guy from 25 years ago and the spirit of the house. But this song, 'March of the Insane,' this is their lost record. This is the record they were making before their singer murdered [them]."

“Studio 666” includes appearances from Jeff Garlin, Will Forte and Whitney Cummings.

The Dream Widow project sees Grohl (handling vocals, guitar, bass and drums) working with lead guitarist Jim Rota of Fireball Ministry renown, with assistance on a few tracks by keyboardists Rami Jaffee and Oliver Roman.

Currently playing dates in South America, the Foo Fighters will perform at the Grammy Awards on April 3.
