View Full Version : Faith No More reform!

Faith No More is getting back together.

The band broke up in 1998 and has not played since.

This week they announced that Mike Bordin, Roddy Bottum, Bill Gould, Jon Hudson and Mike Patton will reunite for a European tour.

The band cites “zero label obligations” and “still young and strong enough to deliver a kick-arse set” as the reason for the reunion.

Here is the official statement from Faith No More:

“Faith No More has always stood out as some sort of unique beast; part dog, part cat?its music almost as schizophrenic as the personalities of its members. When it all worked, it worked really well, even if the chemistry was always volatile. Throughout our 17years of existence, the mental and physical energy required to sustain this creature was considerable and relentless. Though amicable enough, when we finally split, we all followed paths seemingly destined to opposite ends of the universe”.

“Yet during the entire 10 years that have passed since our decision to break up we've experienced constant rumors and requests from fans and promoters alike. Nevertheless, for whatever reason, none of us kept in regular touch, much less to discuss any possibilities of getting together”.

“What's changed is that this year, for the first time, we've all decided to sit down together and talk about it. And what we've discovered is that time has afforded us enough distance to look back on our years together through a clearer lens and made us realize that through all the hard work, the music still sounds good, and we are beginning to appreciate the fact that we might have actually done something right”.

“Meanwhile we find ourselves at a moment in time with zero label obligations, still young and strong enough to deliver a kickass set, with enthusiasm to not only revisit our past but possibly add something to the present. And so with this we've decided to hold our collective breaths and jump off this cliff....

“We can only hope that the experience of playing together again will yield results erratic and unpredictable enough to live up to the legacy of FNM.
Who know where this will end or what it will bring up...only the future knows. But we are about to find out!”


Yeah only a European tour to start but I'm still insane in my excitement! Patton loves Australia so much that if they decide to take this further we'll most definitely be next!

Banda is a punk-funk-hiphop, I love Epic. Mike Patton, is a type sufiecientemente crazy and ability to create alternative projects as Mr.Bungle (I love Carousel), Tomahawk and Fantômas.;)

True. Although I still really like most of the post-Real Thing FNM stuff. I'll definitely catch them if they tour the US if it's not too pricey.
