Foo Fighters new album, with drummer Taylor Hawkins revealing they are under pressure to match the success of 2011 record, Wasting Light.
During an interview with Billboard magazine, Hawkins gave an update on the Foos eagerly anticipated new LP - which they begun work on earlier this year - stating: "We're getting started. We're getting our ideas together.
"Dave [Grohl] has his brain working overtime, like usual. He's got a lot of great ideas, both musically and conceptually - none that I can speak of at this moment, but it's gonna be great. It's gonna be cool."
When asked whether the rockers feel pressured to emulate the success of their last record, Taylor added: "Absolutely. You always want every one of them to be the best one you've ever done.
"You always think you haven't done your best one. Although some people may feel we have, I still think we haven't written our 'Hotel California' or our 'Bohemian Rhapsody' or whatever.
"You should always be a little scared. Every time you start a record, you have to be ready to f**king kill yourself or it's not gonna be any good."
Earlier this year, Grohl told MTV News he has "big plans" when it comes to their new album.
