Foo Fighters Reveal Dave Grohl Played Drums On Their New Album “But Here We Are”


While yesterday (May 21st) saw multi-platinum alternative rockers Foo Fighters reveal that they have recruited veteran drummer Josh Freese (The Vandals, A Perfect Circle, etc.) for their 2023 touring, it wasn’t Freese who sat behind the kit on the Foos‘ approaching eleventh studio album, “But Here We Are“.

Following the tragic 2022 passing of the band’s longtime drummer/vocalist Taylor Hawkins, it appears that Foo Fighters vocalist/guitarist Dave Grohl was bashing the skins on this new album. Grohl is of course no stranger to drumming, having risen to fame behind the kit with grunge megastars Nirvana in the early 90s.

Word of Grohl‘s expanded role on the upcoming new album was mentioned yesterday amid conversations that took place with Freese during the band’s free livestream performance. Freese was seen asking Grohl about his performances on the record. June 02nd currently stands as the release date for the Foo Fighters‘ new album “But Here We Are” and the band will kick off their touring on it this week.
