Rockers the Foo Fighters will end their year-long concert hiatus by performing live in Mexico City on Dec. 13.

Frontman Dave Grohl had to assure fans the band was not splitting up after onstage remarks he made at some of the group’s final world tour shows left devotees fearing the worst, but, after the success of his debut as a documentary maker and drummer Taylor Hawkins’ movie debut as Iggy Pop in CBGB, it appears the band is ready to hit the stage again.

They’ll join The National for a gig at the 55,000-seat capacity Foro Sol stadium in December.

The Foo Fighters last performed together in September, 2012, at the Global Festival in New York, but several members of the band were part of Grohl’s star-studded spin-off act Sound City Players, who formed for a handful of shows earlier this year to promote the release of his Sound City movie.

Grohl recently confirmed reports suggesting Foo Fighters were working on a new album, which the band hoped to release in 2014.
