The trio are rumoured to be working on the Foo Fighters frontman's new documentary on Sound City Studios, where Nirvana's seminal album Nevermind was recorded with Vig on production duties.

Announcing the hook up on his Twitter page, Vig wrote:

Novoselic has been active in US politics in recent years and wrote a book, Of Grunge and Government: Let's Fix This Broken Democracy.
