The Offspring is congratulating their friend and former drummer Josh Freese.

Freese, who spent the last two years drumming with The Offspring, is now going on the road with the Foo Fighters.

In a Facebook post, band wrote, “We’re very happy for, and proud of our friend Josh Freese on joining Foo Fighters. Well deserved!”

Freese, who’s also played with Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle and Guns N’ Roses, was announced as the new Foo Fighters drummer during a streaming concert Sunday.

A week before the news broke about the Foo Fighters, The Offspring announced that they also had a new drummer: Brandon Pertzborn, formerly of Marilyn Manson and Suicidal Tendencies.

Fans will see Freese perform at the band’s first show back on May 24th. Bay Area fans can see the Foo Fighters perform at Outside Lands as they headline the festival on Saturday, August 12th.
