Foo Fighters Announce Indefinite “iHateUs”


After much speculation it seems Foo Fighters’ fans worst fears have become a reality, with drummer Taylor Hawkins today confirming that the band is taking an indefinite break.

The news comes as the band teased a major announcement throughout the week. Conducting an interview with Artisan News, Hawkins joked that the band was on “iHateUs”.

“We’re on iHateUs right now, we’re on an indefinite iHateUs. That’s not 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,” Hawkins said.

The New York Post speculated that the band was going on a break to allow frontman Dave Grohl time to work on a solo project and that Hawkins was “pissed about it.” But this was later considered “utterly ridiculous” by a representative for the band.

Whilst the world is unsure as to when we will see the return of the rock gods, we sure as hell hope we see them back together soon!
