Faith No More plan to release their first album in over 18 years, the band officially revealed that they will release a new LP sometime in the next few months.
Back in May, the group tweeted a cryptic message, teasing the possibility of a new album. This was epic news for fans of the band, who’ve waited 18 years for a new record.
The American rockers are completing work on a new record, their first since 1997′s Album of the Year, due out in May 2015.
Faith No More are releasing their new track titled ‘Superhero’ to coincide with Record Store Day. The upcoming single will be available as a limited-edition 7-inch on March 17th and digitally on March 31st.
Bassist Bill Gould, told Rolling Stone the project is pretty far along and has been about a year and a half in the making. The guys have been holed up in a rehearsal space in California, working on material for the upcoming release. “We live in different cities and all have other things going on, so it’s a matter of checking in and focusing and working little by little,” Gould said.
“We weren’t touring, we have these songs that we were working on — that we think are pretty cool — and why don’t we just do our own imprint and kind of reclaim our future, in a way? We own the future more than we ever have,” he said.
When asked about the band’s sound, Gould said, “What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we’re doing reflects where we’ve gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch. And I think there’s parts that are very powerful and there’s parts that have a lot of ‘space’. Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it’s always going to sound like us. It’s just what we do, that makes us feel good. Hopefully it doesn’t sound like a bunch of 50-year-old men… which we are!”
Faith No More have also announced a new world tour, however the dates outside of North America are very sporadic.
