Dave Grohl Reveals Foo Fighters Hiatus Plans


Foo Fighters will be taking another hiatus from touring outside of select shows following the conclusion of the Concrete and Gold tour. Dave Grohl told Billboard’s Chart Beat podcast that he is ready for a break, but already has ideas for the next Foo Fighters album. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments.

“It’s a challenge, you know? You kind of set these goals for yourself, to see if you can do it again, even when you’re crawling to the finish line you know that it’s there. So here we are at the last set of shows we’ve been on for a year and a half and I’m ready to take a break but I’m ready to do it again at some point.

When we start making records it’s almost like I don’t hear the song as much as I can see them, in my head. So I don’t read music, I see music in kind of shapes and patterns, so I can see the next record, I know that there is another one there, I don’t know when but I think I know what we should do. We’ve been lucky, we’ve had this lightning rod that we’ve followed for fucking twenty four years, or whatever and it takes us where we think we should go.”
