Dave Grohl Debunks Rumors Of Foo Fighters' Demise, Confirms Hiatus

Daniel Kohn/Prefix

On the heels of yesterday’s rumor that the Foo Fighters’ indefinite hiatus could be a code word for band breakup, Dave Grohl felt compelled to explain his and the band’s position regarding their time off.

Today, Grohl penned an open letter where he thanks fans for a great year, informs them that he’s in the midst of finishing his Sound City documentary, and lastly, debunks rumors that the band will breaking up though he does confirm that the band will be going on a hiatus.

Read the letter below:
Hey everyone...
Dave here. Just wanted to write and thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for another incredible year. (Our 18th, to be exact!) We truly never could have done any of this without you... 
Never in my wildest dreams did I think Foo Fighters would make it this far. I never thought we COULD make it this far, to be honest. There were times when I didn't think the band would survive. There were times when I wanted to give up. But... I can't give up this band. And I never will. Because it's not just a band to me. It's my life. It's my family. It's my world.
Yes... I was serious. I'm not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again. It feels strange to say that, but it's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while. It's one of the reasons we're still here. Make sense? I never want to NOT be in this band. So, sometimes it's good to just... put it back in the garage for a while...
But, no gold watches or vacations just yet... I'll be focusing all of my energy on finishing up my Sound City documentary film and album for worldwide release in the very near future. A year in the making, it could be the biggest, most important project I've ever worked on. Get ready... it's coming.
Me, Taylor, Nate, Pat, Chris, and Rami... I'm sure we'll all see you out there... somewhere...
Thank you
