This is Faith No More.
And a gimp.
Never mind the gimp.
Faith No More is one of the premiere creative talents in artsy heavy alternative music.
They have been missing for awhile, mostly due to notoriously prolific leader Mike Patton’s 642 different side projects/bands/guest appearances and whatever shiny has his attention on any given day.
There was a point not so long ago, that any future of Faith No More might be in question. In a January 2013 interview, Mike Patton suggested that the band would not remain active beyond the reunion tour, stating that “it’s sort of petered out” and the band was “maybe a little too conscious for [their] own good.”
But 2015 is a glorious year, as the band graced the world with, “Sol Invictus”.
If you haven’t tasted it yet, no worries. Here is your chance to check out Faith No More, streaming LIVE.
Friday, May 8th is the date. The gig will be broadcast live from The Fillmore in Detriot, MI.
Here is the link for the Yahoo/Live Nation site from where can check out the show.
Until then, check out some new Faith No More… like classic-form, ‘Superhero’ from the “Sol Invictus” album.
And another new raw track, “Motherfucker”.
If you’d like to bypass the streaming and go straight for the in-person live experience (recommended)…
