FOO FIGHTERS To Make 'Official Band Announcement' Wednesday Evening

According to The Pulse Of Radio, FOO FIGHTERS will make what's being billed as "an official band announcement" on Wednesday night (March 2) via their social media sites. A message posted at the band's Facebook account and Twitter feed late Tuesday night (March 1) said simply, "Official band announcement tomorrow night. Stay tuned."

A report from the New York Post's "Page Six" on Monday cited an unnamed source saying that there was "tension" between FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins over Grohl's alleged plans to launch a solo career — which may have begun with his performance at the Oscars on Sunday (February 28).

Grohl said that FOO FIGHTERS were going on hiatus for a while following the conclusion late last year of the touring cycle behind its 2014 album "Sonic Highways".

The "Page Six" source said, "The band is billing it as a ‘break,’ but it's totally Dave going solo and Taylor is pissed about it." Another source, however, said any reports of band tension are "completely untrue."

A rep for FOO FIGHTERS declined to comment on Grohl's plans to Entertainment Weekly, but called reports about the band breaking up "utterly ridiculous."
