This week, Foo Fighters shared ‘Under You’ — the latest single to be released from their forthcoming album ‘But Here We Are’ — and announced a free global streaming event.
Set for release on June 2 via Roswell Records/Columbia Records, the LP will mark their first new material since the passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins in 2022. ‘Under You’ follows first single ‘Rescued’ in previewing the LP.
The band confirmed that they would be continuing to make music in January. This followed the sudden passing of their drummer Taylor Hawkins in March 2022, while the band were on tour in Colombia.
Currently, the identity of the band’s new drummer remains unknown, although both Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron and Rufus Taylor (son of Queen’s Roger Taylor) have denied speculation that they are now involved in the band’s new project.
Elsewhere, Death Cab For Cutie and The Postal Service’s joint headline appearance at Riot Fest comes as part of a huge joint tour of North America for Ben Gibbard’s bands.
