After teasing fans with news of a major announcement, the Foo Fighters have unveiled their big news with a video on YouTube.

The clip addresses recent rumours that the band is going to split and that frontman Dave Grohl is pursuing a solo career.

Earlier today, a video emerged of drummer Taylor Hawkins saying the band is on "indefinite hiatus", however, the official announcement video reveals that's not the case.

The seven-minute clip features Grohl discussing a solo career, before heading to the studio to experiment making electronic music.
