Following a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances, Foo Fighters return with 'But Here We Are', out June 2nd on Roswell Records/Sony Music Entertainment Australia, along with lead single 'Rescued' that is available now.
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 ten songs that run the emotional gamut from rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between.
The drummer on the new song is not identified and does not sound like Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who has concentrated on singing and rhythm guitar since he formed the band in 1995 but occasionally gets behind the kit. In fact, it sounds like Josh Freese, who has been widely tipped as the band’s next drummer, although no announcement has been made and reps for the group did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Wednesday morning. The band has scheduled months of tour dates, beginning in New Hampshire on May 24, and looks likely to spend most of the rest of the year on the road
Produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, 'But Here We Are' is in nearly equal measure the eleventh 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 twenty-eight years ago, a process that was as therapeutic as it was about a continuation of life.
