Released last Friday, Foo Fighters’ 11th studio album But Here We Are is out now on Roswell Records/RCA Records – listen here. Featuring ‘Rescued’‘Under You’, ‘Show Me How’, and ‘The Teacher’, the 10-track album was produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, and has been already been met with waves of critical acclaim hailing it as one of the best in the vaunted Foo Fighters catalogue. Sonically channelling the naiveté of the band’s 1995 debut, informed by decades of maturity and depth, 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 world’s premier stadium band returned to the stage two weeks ago to kick off their current world tour, which includes headline sets at festivals Boston Calling, Sonic Temple, Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Riot Fest, and more. In addition to the live debut of songs from But Here We Are, fans can of course expect the kind of setlists which have made Foo Fighters one of the biggest live draws on the worldwide stadium, arena and festival circuit: ‘The Pretender’‘Breakout’‘This Is a Call’‘My Hero’‘All My Life’‘Everlong’‘The Sky Is A Neighborhood’‘Learn To Fly’‘Best Of You’‘Monkey Wrench’‘Times Like These’‘Walk’ and more. Foo Fighters will also perform in Japan, Brazil and Abu Dhabi in 2023, before heading down under.

Joining Foo Fighters as special guests are:

(Perth, Adelaide, Sydney + Brisbane): QLD punkers The Chats conquered the globe in 2017 with ‘Smoko’ then hit #1 with LP Get F**cked. Hands down the world’s greatest post-millennial punk-rock group, they’ll be match-fit by November following a 28-date US tour in October.

(Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane): Manchester duo Hot Milk release their debut album A Call To The Void in August, in between northern hemisphere sets at festivals Download, Lollapalooza, Reading, and more. ​

Melbourne: Channelling Riot Grrrl-era energy with a 2023 spin, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers wrapped their debut UK tour last month. EP Pretty Good For A Girl Band stands testament as a powerful documentation of voicing what the band stand for.

Perth: After taking out triple j’s Unearthed High crown in 2020 and touring the country as part of festival line-ups since, Adelaide duo and self-proclaimed “Juice-box punk-pop” girls Teenage Jones headed to Austin, Texas, to make their SXSW debut in 2023.

(Aotearoa, all shows): An essential party-punk voice for working people, five-piece Dick Move are notorious for their pumping live shows. Their blink-and-you’ll-miss-it punk anthems can be heard on latest album Chop. ​
