After performing at the Oscars and Grammys, you would think Dave Grohl would want a break from the limelight.
However, the frontman looks set to launch himself forward once more as his band, the Foo Fighters, tease a mysterious announcement.
A Tweet appeared from the band’s official Twitter account that read: “Official band announcement tomorrow night. Stay tuned.”

PageSix has since reported that the band are set to split up, rumours pointing to Grohl eyeing up a solo project.
However, these have been rubbished by a Foo Fighters spokesperson, who told Entertainment Weekly that the idea of a break-up was “utterly ridiculous”.
In 2015, the band released an EP titled St. Cecilia, along with a message from Grohl that hinted at leaving the project behind (via NME): “We could use a nice wander through the woods right about now. Another empty journal, another tap on the shoulder … those things are never far behind. It’s what lies ahead in those woods that excites me now….”
Later in the year, however, the ex-Nirvana drummer said they wouldn’t split as the group were like family: “It’s a family and it’s become a way of life with us. We love each other.”
So what could the mystery announcement be? Perhaps a new album? Tour dates? Glastonbury headline slot? (Emily Eavis has said they will not be playing the festival, so quite unlikely). Who knows, but we’re excited nonetheless.Reuse content
