Today, the Foo Fighters announce a return to true form. Dave Grohl and his band of brothers are emerging from a sorrow most can’t comprehend, the lost of their best friend, brother and bandmate, Taylor Hawkins. They’re releasing a new album, But Here We Are, June 2nd and starting to tour again next month in May. You can listen to their new single, “Rescued” now. (see below).
Not much is known of the making of the new album or who will be playing drums for the Foo live, but rumors of Matt Cameron of Pearl Jam/Soundgarden joining in has been squashed as he has spoken up and made it clear, he is not.
The album is produced by the band and their returning producer of the last two albums, Matt Kurstin. The cover art is a cryptic blur of a simplistic wash against a white background. They are releasing it through pre orders and it will be available in several formats including cassette tapes, CD and variations on vinyl.
In a press release from the band, “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.” The album’s 10 songs are said to “run the emotional gamut from rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between.”
