Second track from upcoming album now available
While ears are still ringing from the sonic and emotional gut punch that was “Rescued,” Foo Fighters have unveiled “Under You,” an aggressively melodic punk-tinged earworm sure to join its predecessor in massive summer singalongs on the band’s upcoming tour dates.
“Under You” is the second advance offering from the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers’ 11th album, But Here We Are, out June 2nd on Roswell Records/RCA Records. The new song follows the aforementioned “Rescued.”
The group marks the announcement of Foo Fighters: Preparing Music For Concerts, a global streaming event packed with rock and roll (including debut performances of songs from But Here We Are), exclusive behind the scenes footage, and a few surprises—all captured in the spacious yet homey confines of the band’s own 606 studios. Foo Fighters: Preparing Music For Concerts will premiere May 21st at 8 pm BST/3 pm EST/noon PST exclusively via Veeps, with on-demand repeat viewing enabled through May 24th.
Produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, But Here We Are is 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.
The band still has yet to announce who will be drumming following the unexpected passing of Taylor Hawkins in March 2022. Hawkins was found dead in his Bogota, Colombia hotel room on March 25th while the group was on tour in South America after a drug overdose. The band canceled the remainder of its 2022 tour dates, but reunited in September 2022 to host two all-star Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concerts.
The Foo Fighters have announced tour dates for 2023, including multiple headlining festival performances at Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Festival, Austin City Limits Festival, Louder Than Life, and opening a new club in Washington, DC, among others.
