Earlier this month, the band confirmed the details of their 11th studio album and the follow-up to 2021's Medicine At Midnight.

In a statement, they said: "A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year, But Here We Are is a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family."

They added: "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 have also shared lead single Rescued and their most recent cut, Under You.
