After a week of teasing, Foo Fighters have announced a new album.
The record is titled But Here We Are, and drops June 2. You can listen to lead single “Rescued” now via digital outlets.
But Here We Are is the follow-up to 2021’s Medicine at Midnight, and, more notably, the first Foo Fighters record since the unexpected death of drummer Taylor Hawkins in March 2022. A press release describes But Here We Are as a “brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year.”
Following Hawkins’ passing, Foo Fighters canceled all of their tour dates before reemerging for two giant tribute concerts to their late bandmate in September. On New Year’s Eve, they announced they intended to continue as a band, and have since scheduled a number of headlining concerts and festival sets for 2023, the first of which takes place May 24 in Gilford, New Hampshire.
As for who’s playing drums with the Foos on the album and on tour, that hasn’t yet been announced.
Here’s the But Here We Are track list:
“But Here We Are”
“Nothing at All”
“Show Me How”
