Following a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances, Foo Fighters return with But Here We Are, out June 2 on Roswell Records/RCA 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.
There’s no word as of yet who their new drummer will be, but upon listening to Recued, it sounds like Dave on the skins, at least on the album. The effort was produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, But Here We Are is in nearly equal measure the 11th Foo Fighters album and the first chapter of the band’s new life. Sonically channelling 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. The album comes as a surprise for fans, but we knew they were in motion towards a return, because they’ve announced a smattering of dates in the past month or so.
Additional tour dates were placed on their website at the same time as the new song announcement. The global trek begins May 23rd in New Hampshire and bounces from the U.S. to Germany, Japan and Brazil for single dates through September and places the last show in El paso, TX… for now.
But Here We Are is available for Pre-Order.
