Albums Of The Week: Foo Fighters | But Here We Are

Dave Grohl & co. cope with the death of Taylor Hawkins in the only way they know how: By baring their hearts & souls in arena-rock anthems about loss, love & life.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Following a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances, Foo Fighters return with But Here We Are.

A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Dave Grohl and co. have endured over the last year, But Here We Are is a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family. Courageous, damaged and unflinchingly authentic, But Here We Are opens with the single Rescued, the first of 10 songs that run the emotional gamut from rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between.

Produced by Greg Kurstin and the band, But Here We Are is in nearly equal measure the 11th Foo Fighters album and the first chapter of their new life. Sonically channeling 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.”
