Foo Fighters return with first album since passing of Taylor Hawkins, But Here We Are out June 2

Foo Fighters have confirmed details of their first new record since the passing of legendary drummer Taylor Hawkins

Christened But Here We Are, the Foos’ 11th album has been produced by both Greg Kurstin and the band and will be released on June 2 via Roswell Records/Columbia Records. The news comes at the same time as the release of its first single, Rescued, which you can listen to below.  

An official press release calls the record “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.”

Here We Are is available for pre-order now, with all pre-orders including Rescued as an instant grat. 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
