Foo Fighters have announced today that their new album “But We Are Here” will be releasing on June 2nd via Rosewell/RCA. Their lead single, which is entitled “Rescued”, is an incredibly poignant opener for an album that will be the band’s first since the incredibly sad loss of long time drummer Taylor Hawkins. “Rescued” has got the same massive hooks, big sound and great energy that the band is known for, but you can hear the pain in words like “Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Is this happening now? Are you feeling what I’m feeling? This is happening now.”
Over the last year, Foo Fighters have been through the most difficult time they’ve ever faced. On New Year’s Eve, the band took to social media with a statement –
“As we say goodbye to the most difficult and tragic year that our band has ever known, we are reminded of how thankful we are for the people that we love and cherish most, and for the loved ones who are no longer with us.
“FOO FIGHTERS were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life. And for the past 27 years our fans have built a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together. A place to share our joy and our pain, our hopes and fears, and to join in a chorus of life together through music. Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were — and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward.
“We also know that you, the fans, meant as much to Taylor as he meant to you and we know that when we see you again — and we will soon — he’ll be there in spirit with all of us every night.”

The band’s press release states –
Following a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances, Foo Fighters return with But Here We Are, out June 2 on Roswell Records/RCA Records.
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 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 Areis 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.
But Here We Are is available for PREORDER NOW, with all preorders including “Rescued” as an instant grat.
The album’s track list is as follows:
