When Dave Grohl addressed the audience midway through their blistering set at this weekend's Global Citizen Festival, fans around the world recoiled and took to Twitter to repeat his words:

"We don't have any shows after this," Grohl said. "This is where we play as many songs as we can in a short period of time, because, honestly, I don't know when we're gonna do it again."

Sounds pretty ominous, especially given the generally positive tone at the Central Park gathering of international do-gooders. Worried fans noted that rumblings about a looming Foo Fighters breakup began well over a month ago. Despite his tactful choice of words, it seemed pretty clear that something was amiss. 

Grohl took to the band's Facebook page today to throw a little water on the rumor fire. Here's the full text, in case you're looking for some National Treasure-type clues about what he really means. 

Hey everyone…

Dave here. Just wanted to write and thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for another incredible year. (Our 18th, to be exact!) We truly never could have done any of this without you…

Never in my wildest dreams did I think Foo Fighters would make it this far. I never thought we COULD make it this far, to be honest. 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.

Yes… I was serious. 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… I'll be focusing all of my energy on finishing up my Sound City documentary film and album for worldwide release in the very near future. A year in the making, it could be the biggest, most important project I've ever worked on. Get ready… it's coming.

Me, Taylor, Nate, Pat, Chris, and Rami… I'm sure we'll all see you out there… somewhere…
Thank you, thank you, thank you…

Dave

So, there you have it. The Foo Fighters are definitely, maybe, probably not breaking up. Maybe. In any event, check out their stellar performance from the festival below. Not a bad note to go out on.
