Yesterday (May 21), Foo Fighters debuted a new track Nothing At All during their livestream, Foo Fighters: Preparing Music For Concerts, held at Dave Grohl’s 606 studios in Northridge, California.
The song is set to feature on their forthcoming 11th studio album But Here We Are, scheduled for release on June 2 via Roswell Records/Columbia Records, and follows on from last week’s heart-rendering single, Under You.
Nothing At All follows a jaunty and playful rhythm in the verse as Grohl questions ‘Wouldn’t it be dangerous, if nothing was restrained in us?’, before the song escalates into a high-powered, racing chorus with tumbling drums.
During the livestream broadcast event, the rockers played through a number of tracks from their upcoming project, including the aforementioned two tracks, as well as first new single Rescued, and a handful of crowd favourites, including Monkey Wrench and All My Life. On top of performances, the band revealed behind-the-scenes footage of the album’s recording.
The Foos also announced who would be replacing their late drummer Taylor Hawkins behind the kit, revealing that session man and longtime friend of the band Josh Freese would be joining them for their live shows. Freese’s CV includes stints with Nine Inch Nails, Paramore, The Vandals and more.
Foo Fighters are set to hit the road on May 24 in New Hampshire, then continue on through the US with a handful of festival dates, and a few shows over in Europe.
The band have also flagged up “forthcoming and soon-to-be-announced” UK live dates on their website: a pre-sale code will be available to those pre-ordering the forthcoming But Here We Are on any format.
