After declaring an “official band announcement” was imminent, Foo Fighters have followed through on their promise, revealing the band’s decision to go on an indefinite hiatus. The hiatus comes amid rumors of a breakup and possible pursuit of a solo career by frontman Dave Grol, both of which were squashed by the announcement.
Delivered via a sarcastically funny video message that addressed the rumors of the band breaking up and Grohl going solo (and a Nick Lachey cameo) Foo Fighters made clear they are not going their separate ways, while also declaring “nobody’s going fucking solo!” Watch the announcement video here:
Last November, Foo Fighters issued the surprise five-song Saint Cecilia EP. Grohl made a solo appearance at last weekend’s Oscars ceremony, performing The Beatles’ “Blackbird” during the in memoriam portion of the program.
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins was interviewed by Artisan News on January 16 at the 27th Annual Guitar Center Drum Off where he appeared with his side project The Coattail Riders, and revealed the band was on hiatus, or as he put it “ihateus.” Watch the interview below:
