The Foo Fighters' first album since the passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins has been unveiled as But Here We Are, and the band has begun teasing their return to new music and setting up festival headlining gigs. The news comes after the band teased the release of new songs and announced headlining festival engagements. It is unknown who played drums during the album's tracking sessions or who will be behind the drum setup for the band's future live gigs this year.
Earlier this May, the world-famous Foo Fighters shocked the world on social media by cryptically teasing some new music, then literally weeks afterward went ahead and surprise announced a whole new album, But Here We Are, the band's 11th studio album, was referred to as;
“A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year.” It was “the sound of brothers finding refuge in the music that brought them together in the first place 28 years ago.”
The 10 track album is due out as early as June 2nd, until then, we have a sneak preview in the form of the album's lead single, "Rescued," where leas singer Dave Grohl sings the lines, “We’re all free to some degree/To dance under the lights, I’m just waiting to be rescued/Bring me back to life.” A bitter-sweet symphony for sure.
Taylor Hawkins, 50, passed away on March 25 in Bogotá, Colombia, just hours before the Foo Fighters were scheduled to perform at the Festival Estereo Picnic. The remaining tour dates were promptly canceled by the band. He joined the Foo Fighters in 1997 while on tour supporting their sophomore album, The Colour and the Shape. He made his recorded debut on the band's 1999 album, "There Is Nothing Left To Lose," and has played on every single album since, including In Your Honor, where he is listed as lead singer on the song "Cold Day In The Sun," and Concrete & Gold, where he is also listed as lead singer on "Sunday Rain." Taylor was a 15-time Grammy Award winner and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee as a member of the Foo Fighters. He was obsessed with music, both with Foo Fighters and with his countless solo and side projects and collaborations.
