Foo Fighters Return With But Here We Are

Following a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances, Foo Fighters return with the Dave Grohl-fronted group’s 11th studio album But Here We Are, out 2nd June on Roswell Records/Columbia Records.

A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year, But Here We Are is a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family. Courageous, damaged and unflinchingly authentic, But Here We Are opens with newly released lead single Rescued, the first of 10 songs that run the emotional gamut from rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between across this, the first Foo Fighters music without the late drummer and sometimes frontman Taylor Hawkins since the group’s 1997 seminal sophomore release The Colour And The Shape.

Produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo FightersBut Here We Are is in nearly equal measure the 11th Foo Fighters album and the first chapter of the band’s new life. Sonically channeling the naiveté of Foo Fighters’ 1995 debut, informed by decades of maturity and depth, But Here We Are is the sound of brothers finding refuge in the music that brought them together in the first place 28 years ago, a process that was as therapeutic as it was about a continuation of life.

Foo Fighters are yet to play a headline show without Hawkins outside of the one-off London and L.A. tribute shows to the group’s late drummer last September, but have been steadily building up momentum for this release with the announcement of live headline and festival appearances that kick off next month at the Bank Of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire but will include stops at Boston Calling. Rock am Ring and Rock im Park festivals in Germany and Fuji Rock in Japan amongst others. It is still unclear who will be drumming for the group during these shows or who filled in for Hawkins on the record, although for the latter it might be safe to assume Grohl himself stepped back into the seat that is so natural a home for him.
