The group is learning to move on from the loss of their drummer Taylor Hawkins.
More than a year ago Taylor Hawkins passed away, an event that happened in Colombia when he was on tour with the band.
Foo Fighters announced on Wednesday that they will be releasing a new album called “But Here We Are” and the first single “Rescued” is now available with the band’s announcement.
In a press release, the band commented that the album comes “after a year of overwhelming loss, personal introspection and bittersweet memories.”
“A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters have faced over the past year, ‘But Here We Are’ is a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family,” their statement said.
Hawkins was a beloved member of the Foo Fighters that spanned more than two decades, passing away in March 2022 at age 50. Six months after his departure, the band paid tribute at two commemorative concerts in London and Los Angeles.
“Without Taylor, we never would have become the band we were, and without Taylor, we know we’re going to be a different band moving forward.”
“And we know that when we see them again—and we will soon—he will be there in spirit with all of us every night.” the band commented on this year.
