This will be the first album for the band since the loss of Taylor Hawkins.

Following a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances, Foo Fighters are making their triumphant return with But Here We Are, out June 2 on Roswell Records/Sony Music Entertainment Australia.

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, arriving just over a year after the tragic death of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. Hawkins died at age 50 while on tour with the band in Colombia with the band cancelling all remaining shows at the time.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

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.

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’s track list is as follows:

Under You
Hearing Voices
But Here We Are
The Glass
Nothing At All
Show Me How
Beyond Me
The Teacher

But Here We Are is available pre-order now from JB HiFi – and from on White Vinyl, Black Vinyl and CD.
