Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has admitted that he's bored with the process of recording an album in a studio.

He and his bandmates travelled to various cities in the US to record tracks for their new album Sonic Highways.

They also had the process recorded for an accompanying TV series with the same title, and now Grohl can't imagine returning to a straightforward recording process in the future.

He explained to Q magazine: "More than a reality show, more than a live concert series. It's part of the reason that we got deeper into the concept, because we would love people to learn as much as be entertained.

"But I can't imagine just going into a studio and making another record. It seems so boring to me."

Grohl recently explained the group explored the "regional relevance of music" while recording Sonic Highways.

He said: "Basically, the process is we come to a city and we spend a week and we start recording an instrumental, because I interview all of these different musicians from that city.

"I talk about the regional relevance of the music from that city, the cultural influence, that 'made-for-the-sound' of the music.

"There's no way that you can tell the history of a city's music in one hour, so we have to do it in a way that relates to the band and goes from point A to point B and becomes a song."
