Following the terrible passing of their longtime drummer Taylor Hawkins in March 2022, The Foo Fighters have announced the release of But Here We Are their 11th studio album.
In a press release, the album is referred to as “the first chapter of the band’s new life” and is scheduled to be published on June 2.
The album’s debut single, “Rescued,” was released on April 19 and showcases the Foo Fighters’ recognizable sound of huge guitars and anthemic melodies. It was produced by Greg Kurstin and the band themselves.
With, Dave Grohl tenderly begins Rescued. “It came in a flash/ It came out of nowhere/ It happened so fast/ And then it was over/ Are you thinking what I’m thinking?/ Is this happening now?”
But Here We Are, the latest album from the Foo Fighters, is an unvarnished account of those difficulties. According to the official press release, “But Here We Are is a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship, and family.” Ten tracks on the CD portray a variety of feelings, from despair and wrath to acceptance and calm. “Rescued,” the first single from the album, establishes the tone for the remainder of the work, which is distinguished by its courage, genuineness, and openness.
The band’s 11th album, But Here We Are, combines the simplicity and rawness of their 1995 debut with the maturity and depth they have acquired over the years. It serves as both a new beginning for the group and a reflection of their history.
The band members discover comfort in the music that first drew them together over three decades ago through this album.
Although the identity of the drummer for the album and the band’s next tour dates has not been made public, Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron recently denied rumors that he would be joining the group.
‘But Here We Are’ by the Foo Fighters is released on June 2. The whole tracklist is shown below.
