Iconic rockers Foo Fighters have announced their "indefinite hiatus" this morning, revealed through drummer Taylor Hawkins in an interview with Artisan News.

Hawkins said in the interview, "We’re on ihateus right now, we’re on an indefinite ihateus... 

The news of the hiatus — called an "ihateus" by the band — is reportedly "not because we don’t love each other, or don’t want to make music together …

"We did so much in the last five or six years— 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."
