Since Taylor Hawkins’ passing, rock band Foo Fighters have returned with a new album titled “But Here We Are.” They refer to their newest work as “A Testament to the Healing Powers of Music.”

The band Foo Fighters has said that they are working on their first album since the untimely passing of their drummer Taylor Hawkins in March of 2022. The album titled ‘But Here We Are’ is scheduled to be released on June 2, and the lead track titled ‘Rescued’ is currently available.

According to a press release issued by the Seattle-based rock band, Foo Fighters, the song “But Here We Are” is “a brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the course of the last year,” and it 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 anger and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between,” the release continued.

According to “Variety,” the identity of the drummer on the new song has not been revealed, and he does not sound like Foo Fighters vocalist Dave Grohl. Grohl, who formed the band in 1995, has primarily focused on singing and playing rhythm guitar since then, but he does occasionally play drums. Although no official announcement has been made and representatives for the band did not immediately reply to calls for comment on Wednesday morning, it appears to be Josh Freese, who has been widely rumoured as the band’s next drummer. In fact, it sounds like Josh Freese.

Rock band Foo Fighters have emerged from hiatus with the release of a brand new album named “But Here We Are.”

The band has tour dates set for several months, the first of which will take place in New Hampshire (United States) on May 24. It appears that the band will spend the majority of the rest of the year on the road.

According to ‘Variety’, Hawkins passed away on March 25, 2022, at the age of 50, just days before the band was scheduled to perform at a festival in Bogota, Colombia. Since 1997, Hawkins had served as the band’s drummer. Prior to that, he had toured with Alanis Morissette before joining the band.

Grohl, the frontman for the band, described Hawkins as “my brother from another mother, my best friend, a man for whom I would take a bullet” in his memoir titled “The Storyteller.” Grohl and Hawkins had a particularly tight relationship.
