    Foo Fighters are going on an indefinite hiatus, according to a recent interview given by drummer Taylor Hawkins.

    As Consequence of Sound points out, just today Artisan News released an interview they conducted with Hawkins back on January 16, in which he confirmed that the arena-rock giants are taking a break for the foreseeable future.

    “We’re on ‘ihateus’ right now, we’re on an indefinite ‘ihateus,'” Hawkins said, punning on the word “hiatus.” He clarified that the decision wasn’t made “because we don’t love each other, or don’t want to make music together… We did so much in the last five or six years — we as a band could go into the studio tomorrow and have just as much fun as we ever had, but I think the world needs a break from us for a little while.”

    Over the course of their 20-plus years in the business, Foo Fighters have assumed the role of being post-grunge's Law & Order

    The confirmation came amid rumors that the group was going to take a break so frontman Dave Grohl could go solo. A teaser came in the early hours of March 2 in the form of a tweet from the band’s official account, which promised some kind of announcement today.

    Foo Fighters first started in 1994 as the one-man project of Grohl, following the dissolution of Nirvana after the suicide of that band’s frontman, Kurt Cobain. Over the course of the next two decades, the Foos became a proper band, released eight studio albums (including the stone-cold classic The Colour and the Shape in 1997), and ascended to a level of fame not common among rock acts in the 21st century. Their eighth full-length, Sonic Highways, was released in the fall of 2014, alongside an HBO documentary series of the same name. Grohl confirmed in June of 2015 that there will be a second season of the series, which explores the connection between music and the cities in which it’s made. The most recent Foo Fighters record was the Saint Cecilia EP, released in November of last year.

    Watch Hawkins’ interview below, and skip to the 5:10 mark to catch his comments about the Foos’ hiatus.

    They might be the best "rock" band out there....
    Musicians who actually play their instruments...no auto tune...no backup dancers to distract you from the fact that the singer can't sing live....

    I saw the rebroadcast of their Wembley Stadium show the other day... it was ridiculous how good they are.

    Agreed 100%. They also don't take themselves too serious and are great with fan dollar value.

    Grohl has no vanity problem doing a fucking Phil Collins cover as he does a Nirvana cover - and not disrespecting Phil Collins - while doing it tongue in cheek.

    Grohl was EXACTLY the type of fun dude that I may have hung out with on the burn out side of my friends in late high school years and slightly beyond. The ones who were a bit more musically inclined than athletically - but still could handle when we'd nerd out on the NBA or NFL or NFL or NWA.
