According to The Pulse Of Radio, FOO FIGHTERS has booked a series of live shows for 2017, but that doesn't mean there will be a new album to accompany them. In an interview with NME, drummer Taylor Hawkins said that the Dave Grohl-led band is a "hunker down period" at the moment, explaining: "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."The drummer added: "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 told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that the Foos are always ready for whatever idea Grohl throws at them next. "The reaction when Dave comes to us with any idea is like, 'Okay.' You know, I know Dave and he has a lot of ideas. He's always thinking and he's always coming up with ideas, whether it's a funny T-shirt or an HBO series. He's creative and he likes to do stuff. He likes projects. He likes to work. And so whenever he says something that he wants to do, I say 'Hell, yeah.'" Hawkins himself has just released a new EP titled "KOTA" and issued a video for the first single, "Range Rover Bitch". The six-song EP is Hawkins' first-ever project under his own name, although in the past he has led bands like the COATTAIL RIDERS and THE BIRDS OF SATAN. FOO FIGHTERS have been on hiatus since November 2015, but they did perform at a private charity concert in Los Angeles last month and have confirmed a number of European festival appearances for next summer.
