During Sunday's event, entitled "Preparing Music for Concerts" on streaming service Veeps, viewers can expect performances of the songs from the upcoming album "But Here We Are," due out June 2. The Foo Fighters' song "Under You" hit streaming services Wednesday, while the first single, "Rescued," landed April 19.

Also part of the show, according to Foo Fighters' social media: behind the scenes footage from the event at the band’s Studio 606 and "a few surprises," which many have thought hints at an introduction of the band's new drummer.

When is the Foo Fighters' new album coming out?

The album "But Here We Are," out June 2, represents "a brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year," the band said in a press release announcing the album.

Lyrics from the song "Under You," obviously reference Grohl and the band's attempts at dealing with Hawkins' death: "Someone said I’ll never see your face again/Part of me just can’t believe it’s true/Pictures of us sharing songs and cigarettes/This is how I’ll always picture you."

"But Here We Are" is the 11th album for the band, which was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2021.
