Rumored since a cryptic tweet and other messages the last few days, Foo Fighters have revealed the band is entering an indefinite hiatus as of now. In an interview with Spin drummer Taylor Hawkins confirmed the news:
“I think the world needs a break from us for a little while”
Rumors and speculation had followed the band for some time as front man Dave Grohl has been eyeing a solo career for some time. He often has many other side-projects in the works, both high profile and behind the scenes. Hawkins himself has several other bands he is a part of including Birds of Satan and Chevy Metal. The future plans of the other members of the group are at this time unknown. Foo Fighters were promoting their current release, the Saint Cecelia (Roswell.RCA) EP, recorded as a charity project to benefit victims of the Paris Terror attacks. Prior to that the band had released the award-winning Sonic Highways (Roswell/RCA) album in 2014.
