Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has teamed up with Lamb Of God singer Randy Blythe plus bassist Mike Dean and drummer Reed Mullin of veteran hardcore bandCorrosion Of Conformity in a new project called Teenage Time Killer. Blythe posted a photo of himself with the COC guys at Instagram on Thursday (May 9th), while promising that the new outfit will feature "a bunch of cool vocalists." The instrumental sections of the project were recorded at Grohl's personal studio on the famous mixing board he bought from the Sound City recording facility.
Blythe wrote, "Reed had a track he wanted me to write lyrics for and sing on, so I did (title is 'Hung Out To Dry') -- it's old-school COC style thrash punk and I killed it on the mic last night."
Blythe added, "The instruments were recorded at Dave Grohl's studio (watch his documentary, Sound City -- track was recorded on THAT board) -- Grohl will add a couple of guitar tracks to the tune too."
It is not clear when or how the tracks will be released, whether Teenage Time Killer will tour or how extensive Grohl's involvement will be.
Grohl just came off a stretch of promotional appearances for his Sound City film, including live performances by the Sound City Players, a rotating assembly of musicians from the movie.
Blythe made headlines in March when he was acquitted of manslaughter charges in a Czech courtroom. The singer was accused of throwing 19-year-old fan Daniel Nosek off the stage at a 2010 concert in Prague, causing injuries that led to his death. Blythe faced up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
