Dave Grohl, Foo Fighter’s frontman, has just announced that the band will be taking a break. Foo Fighters, the American alternative rock band from Seattle, has been holding strong since 1994. The band has recorded four albums and has sold 10 million albums in the US alone.

Dave Grohl sent out the news in a letter to the band’s fans. He thanks everyone who has supported the band over the years and commented:

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.

Thankfully, this hiatus does not spell out the band’s end. He continued:

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…?

The lead singer remained humble and thanked his fans and his bandmates.
