Foo Fighters Dismiss Break-up Rumours in New Parody Video


Amidst repeated rumours that they're breaking up and/or Dave Grohl is embarking on a solo career, Foo Fighters today released a video entitled "Official Band Announcement".

In the satirical sketch, Grohl is shown in the studio working on his new "one finger" style. Meanwhile, the band meet to discuss the singer's replacement, with plenty of interesting suggestions (Diplo?) thrown into the mix. Just in case the tongue-in-cheek nature of the announcement is somehow misinterpreted, the video closes out with the notice: "For the millionth time, we're not breaking up. And nobody's going fucking solo!"

As Consequence of Sound reports, the initial rumours stem from a comment made by Taylor Hawkins earlier this year, where the Foo Fighters drummer said: "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."
