  • But Here We Are is the band’s first album since the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins last year.
  • The band calls the album “A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year” – but also “a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family”.
  • The first single, “Rescued”, seems to reference Hawkins’ death in its opening lines: “It came out of nowhere, it happened so fast… is this happening now?
  • The band has not revealed who plays drums on “Rescued”, or who will play drums on the band’s upcoming tour and festival dates.
  • But Here We Are will be out June 2nd and is available for pre-order now.
