This date is doubly special for the band as it’s also the kickoff for their upcoming tour, with the first show happening in New Hampshire.
Foo Fighters’ new album, ‘But Here We Are,’ will hit the airwaves on June 2, marking their first music offering since Taylor Hawkins’ passing. The album’s physical packaging carries a note: ‘For Virginia and Taylor.‘ It’s a touching tribute from the band to two important figures in their lives and a clear indicator of the emotional depth that’s going into this record. Fans will surely appreciate the special dedication to Hawkins and Dave Grohl’s late mother, Virginia Hanlon Grohl.
