Los Angeles - The Foo Fighters have denied splitting up.

The rock band have slammed the rumours, insisting they are simply taking a well earned break from music and could never give up on the band because they have worked so hard to make it a success.

Frontman Dave Grohl said in a statement: "There were times when I didn't think the band would survive. There were times when I wanted to give up.

"But... I can't give up this band. And I never will. Because it's not just a band to me. It's my life. It's my family. It's my world."

Reconnect with their creativity

Fans panicked on Saturday when Dave told the 60 000-strong crowd at Global Citizen Festival in New York: "This is it, man. We don't have any [shows] after this".

The rockers are adamant they will record in the future, but will be taking a short hiatus from touring to reconnect with their creativity and reassess what they have achieved so far.

Dave clarified his comment in the statement, saying: "I'm not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again. It feels strange to say that, but it's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while.

"It's one of the reasons we're still here. Make sense? I never want to NOT be in this band. So, sometimes it's good to just... put it back in the garage for a while... But, no gold watches or vacations just yet."
