Today, Foo Fighters released an enchanting and serene new single titled “Show Me How” from their highly-anticipated album, But Here We Are – set to release June 2. The captivating song features Dave Grohl’s daughter Violet on backup vocals–joining her father–and comes with an accompanying video directed by Tim Kellner.
On the song Foo Fighters and Voilet paint a sonic landscape that blends dream-pop and shoegaze influences with their iconic rocking distortion making for a renewed yet familiar feel. The album as a whole marks a poignant milestone for Foo Fighters, as it marks their first album since the tragic loss of Taylor Hawkins.

But Here We Are is produced by the renowned Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters themselves and showcases their unwavering musical prowess.

The band’s powerful presence on stage was preceded by two unforgettable Hawkins tribute shows featuring an array of all-star performers in late 2022. Their previous album, Medicine at Midnight, was released in 2021, leaving fans eagerly awaiting this latest sonic journey.
Notably, last night the band also performed returned to the stage for their first full headlining concert since the death of Hawkins. The evening saw Freese behind the kit while Foo Fighters dished out a 21-song performance at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook in Gilford, N.H.
Before performing the title track of their impending release, Ghrol addressed the crowd saying, “The last year we stuck together as a band. And there was never too long a period of time where we didn’t spend with each other because we knew that we had to get through this whole thing together, And in doing that we wrote a bunch of new songs. That’s what helped us deal with everything that we had to go through. So tonight we’re going to play some of those new songs for you for the first time.”
