Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has passed away at the age of 50, according to a statement from the band.

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has passed away at 50.

A cause of death has not yet been disclosed.

On Friday night, the Foo Fighters released a statement via Twitter announcing Hawkins' death.

"The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins," the statement reads. "His musical spirit and infectious laughter will live on with us forever."

"Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family," they continue, "and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect in this unimaginably difficult time."

The band is currently in Bogota, Colombia and had been slated to perform at the Estereo Picnic music festival. Understandably, Friday night's show and the remainder of their South American tour have been cancelled.
