Dave Grohl drums for the Prodigy

The former Nirvana and one-time Queens of the Stone Age drummer has lent his services as sticksman on the 'wicked' Prodigy track Run With the Wolves

Dave Grohl is apparently returning to his role as a jobbing drummer to the stars.

The Foo Fighters frontman has, perhaps wisely, announced that he is resting the band for a while after last year's Wembley Stadium mega-gig in support of their Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace album.

But he hasn't been letting the grass grow under his feet. The former Nirvana and one-time Queens of the Stone Age drummer has lent his services as sticksman to the Prodigy.

Grohl appears on their forthcoming album Invaders Must Die, due in March, on a track entitled Run With the Wolves. Liam Howlett told Kerrang: "Dave emailed us to see what we were up to and offered his services. It was really inspiring. It's definitely the most venomous track on the album. Keith really goes for it on lead vocals. It's wicked."

Of the follow-up to 2004's underwhelming Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, Howlett said bullishly: "All fucking bands say their new record's their best, but this just feels really triumphant for us. It's on fire. It's all about the three of us together and what we can do. You know what we deal with - it's beats in a predominantly electronic style and it's full of fucked-up guitars."

The album will be released through the band's own Take Me To The Hospital imprint of Cooking Vinyl in March.
