Taylor Hawkins: ‘We’re Just Figuring Out When the World’s Ready for More Foo Fighters’
Keen-eyed Foo Fighters fans have noticed that their website has turned into a passport with all of the dates stamped being the shows that they are playing in 2017, and with the stamps seemingly growing by the day, there has been question of whether or not an album will accompany their 2017 touring. In a chat with NME, drummer Taylor Hawkins reveals that the band is in "a hunker down period" at the moment.
He explains, “We know we have those shows next year, and we did a charity event for Dave’s kid’s school a couple of weeks ago that got a little bit of press. 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."
The drummer continues, “We will make a new record at some point. 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.'”
Hawkins himself just released a mini-EP titled K.O.T.A. and issued a video for "Range Rover Bitch" over the holidays that can be seen below. There has also been talk of Dave Grohl potentially doing a disc outside of the band as well, but the one definite for the Foo Fighters is that they will be back on the stage in 2017. Keep up with all their touring as it is announced at this location.
