Right now it is Tuesday, March 1, 10:08 PM in Foo Time (Pacific Standard Time). Whatever it is now where you are, that's your difference!

I think if it was good news they'd just tell us. Like "we're delighted to announce Rami is an official member of the band," for instance. Only bad news needs a precursor...

To be absolutely clear off the bat, I do not know what the announcement is.

With that being said, I'm guessing it's going to be a response to the recent press rumours about the status of the band and what Dave is doing (look them up if you've not seen them, but basically totally unsubstantiated rumours). We as fans know the deal as they told us on the SC website, they're casually on another break, doing what they like and they'll be back when they're back. The wider world and press however seemingly need something more concrete to stop them speculating what is going on.

So yeah, that's my expectation. A clarification that they're on a break for a couple of years and will all be working on other projects in the meantime, but they'll be back at some point and haven't fallen out, etc etc.

Yeah, having just read that stuff now, I think you're right. They'll just say that those rumours are crap and they'll be back in a couple of years.

in my opinion, it'd be odd to build anticipation for a BAD announcement with a pre-announcement announcement like this.

I assume it's another break/hiatus/new projects thing as expected, but I'd just find it odd if they were teasing a REAL breakup with 24-hour notice....seems like a weird thing to do

I'd like to think it's absolutely nothing, but their PR game is strong ...usually. So announcing a 24hr teaser to a "band announcement"? to only say "ALL GOOD" - it's trolling.


Actually, today's my birthday - that's what the announcement is. A birthday message in recognition of my years of fandom. Thanks fellas.

There will always be The FooFighters. They may take breaks,....but they will always return. A band this great does not just "dissolve".

its seems it's giving Dave time to write an open letter to the fans, about whatever is the announcement. bad or good, i think that's why there's this 24hour wait going on.

Why the need for a precursor?
No explanation points.

It's something serious IMO.
Either a split, long hiatus, or god forbid an illness. .
I guess we'll see.

I feel sick. Very odd to announce that something is coming.Would of thought if it was something bad it would just be announced?
