Faith No More Working on New Album!
Wed, 03 Sep 2014 14:05:25
Faith No More, who reunited in 2009 for a series of sold out performances and international festivals, are REALLY BACK! The band is currently recording its first full-length album since Album of the Year, which landed in 1997. Thank the music gods for this blessing.
But wait. There is even MORE good news.
A limited edition (5,000 copies) 7-inch single of the song "Motherfucker" will precede the April 2015 release, available via Record Store Day's Black Friday event (November 28). The single will be released digitally on December 9.
"We've always shared a chemistry between ourselves that's unique to this band, but these past few years of touring together have made us aware that we not only play better as a unit, but we like the new stuff we're coming up with," explained Faith No More founder and bass player, Bill Gould, who also spoke with Rolling Stone.
He continued, "So we've decided: we're going to get busy in 2015...make an album we're proud of, kick things up a notch, get out there and perform it and maybe even dedicate a little more focus to our fans in the States this time."
ALL. GOOD. THINGS. Keep the Faith (No More).
The as-of-yet untitled album is being recorded in an Oakland, California studio with Gould handling production. The release will be the first from Faith No More's newly formed imprint, Reclamation Recordings, which will be distributed by Ipecac Recordings.
Prior to the new album's release, Faith No More will headline Australia's Soundwave Festival in February 2015. Worldwide tour dates will be announced soon.
We're still taking a moment to process all of this information.
