Their 11th album debuted at No. 1 in the UK, Australia, Switzerland, and New Zealand, and broke the top 10 of dozen more countries worldwide


Foo Fighters’ brand new 11th album, But Here We Are, unanimously hailed as one of the band’s strongest to date, has become its 10th album to break the Top 10 of the US Album Chart. But Here We Are also marks Foo Fighters’ sixth UK #1, ninth Australian #1, #1 spots in Switzerland and New Zealand, and Top 5 debuts in nearly a dozen more territories.

Released June 2 on Roswell Records/RCA Records, But Here We Are has landed at #8 in its first week on the Billboard 200, while entering at #1 on the Alternative and Hard Rock album sales charts. The new album’s Top 10 debut continues a trend that began with the back to back Top 10 positions achieved by The Colour and the Shape (1997) and There is Nothing Left to Lose (1999), and has since included the #1 charting Wasting Light (2011) and Concrete and Gold (2017), as well as the Top 3 placings of One by One(2002), In Your Honor (2005), Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007), Sonic Highways (2014) and Medicine at Midnight (2021).

Produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, But Here We Are has received the warmest of welcomes—from the capacity crowds singing along to every word of “Rescued” and “Under You” during the band’s current tour, to a still growing torrent of acclaim for the album and its songs including Billboard, which called it “a moving collection that balances raw emotion with the band’s signature determination to see the light through the darkness” and The New York Times which described Grohl’s melodies as “soaring and anthemic as they’ve sounded in years.”

Following the recent announcement of stadium dates in Australia and New Zealand, Foo Fighters resume their ongoing tour in support of But Here We Are this week, including a headlining set at Bonnaroo. For a complete list of dates, go to: https://foofighters.com/tour-dates/
