Foo Fighters Will Record a New Album When “Dave’s Ready to Go,” Says Taylor Hawkins

ABC/Travis BellFoo Fighters have had a fairly quiet year -- their biggest 2016 headline was when the band declared that they weren't breaking up. Dave Grohl and company look to have a busier 2017 with a European tour, but it might take a little longer for new Foo music to arrive.

"We're still in a hunker down period right now," drummer Taylor Hawkins tells NME. "We're fine, we love each other we're all good. We're just figuring out when the world's ready for more Foo Fighters, we're a family."

"We will make a new record at some point," he adds. "We won't really be ready until Dave's ready to go. It's on the books, so we'll definitely be playing. We never really know, we just wait for a text from Dave saying, 'Hey, let's go down to the studio."

Until that text arrives, Foo Fighters will be traveling on the European festival circuit next summer. They also have a U.S. gig lined up at the 2017 MusiCares Person of the Year gala in honor of Tom Petty, which will be held February 10 in Los Angeles.

The last Foo Fighters album was 2014's Sonic Highways.
