Rock Royalty Foo Fighters introduced their new drummer this morning in a special live stream where they also debuted songs from their new album “But Here We Are’ during their special one hour online event.
Their new drummer is none other than Josh Fresse, who has toured with big name bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Guns N’ Roses, A Perfect Circle, the Offspring, Weezer, and the Vandals over his impressive 35 year career.

He has also featured as a recording musician, lending his talent to artists such as Sting, Lana Del Ray and even the Boss Bruce Springsteen.
The live streamed performance, called “Preparing Music For Concerts’ was the first time the band had played on their own since their 2022 March stadium performance in Geelong and the sudden loss of Taylor Hawkins, who had been the bands drummer since 1997.
The Foo Fighters are set to hit the road again this month, kicking off in New Hampshire before heading to Boston, Columbus and Washington.
Australian fans will have to wait a little longer as we patiently await down under tour dates.
