Foo Fighters Announce Josh Freese as New Drummer

Metal Sucks

Following months of speculation after the tragic death of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, the band announced drummer Josh Freese as their new drummer. Freese is an experienced studio and live musician, having played with Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, Guns N’ Roses, 100 gecs and his own band, The Vandals. Until recently, Freese was playing with Danny Elfman and also toured with The Offspring until he stepped down last year.

Foo Fighters made the announcement during their “Foo Fighters: Preparing Music For Concerts” livestream on Sunday, May 21. They are also scheduled to drop their new album, But Here We Are, on June 2.
