Foo Fighters confirm hiatus: 'Sometimes it's good to put it back in the garage for a while'

Rock icons Foo Fighters have revealed that their rumoured hiatus is in fact true and they will be taking a break from both recording and performing live as of now.

In a heartfelt post shared via their official Facebook page earlier this afternoon (October 2), the 'Monkey Wrench' superstars explained that it's time to "put it back in the garage" and thanked their fans for such phenomenal support:

"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..."

Frontman Dave Grohl added: "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."

The group concluded the message by writing: "I'm sure we'll all see you out there... somewhere..."
