Wow. Has it really been that long? Faith No More haven’t released a new album since 1997? Jesus. Well, the band will release their new album Sol Invictus next week and, in case you can’t wait to hear the album it is now streaming over on NPR. If you’re a Faith No More fan, I’m guessing you’ll be into anything the band releases. It’s cool to see them kicking out music after almost twenty years off. Check out Sol Invictus here.
The first new recording from Faith No More in 17 years, “Motherfucker”, can now be streamed a week before its officially release date. The 7″ will officially be released on November 28th as a part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday and will come paired with a J.G. Thirwell remix of the track. On the track, keyboardist Roddy Bottum comments:
“It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherfucker,’ a song about accountability. Basically we’ve created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we’re releasing it on our own label. It’s a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage. . .y’know, stuff like that.”
You can stream the track over at Rolling Stone now.
Fantômas (Melvins, Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Slayer) have announced the release of a vinyl/cassette box set containing their entire discography. The Wunderkammer, as the set is called, will feature every Fantômas record on vinyl as well as a cassette copy of the original Fantômas demo that Mike Patton created and recorded himself. The box set will be released on the Black Friday Record Store Day (November 28) and will retail around $100 USD. The official statement and the cover art can be seen below.
Dude, I though Slaves On Dope were long gone. Just another band to add to my massive list of bands-thought-to-be-dead. I remember back in the day, Slaves On Dope had a song that struck a chord with me. I’m not sure why, but their song “Pushing Me” made somewhat of an impression on a much younger Gnarly. Little did I know that Slaves have been putting out albums consistently over the years. Including a new Covers EP.. Continue reading
Mike Patton’s (Faith No More, Tomahawk, etc) original score for the upcoming crime drama film, The Place Beyond the Pines, will see a physical release on April 9th through Milan Records. The film itself will hit theaters in the U.S. on March 29th and stars the likes of Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta and others. You can watch the official trailer for the film below. I’ll go see the damn thing if only to hear Mike Patton’s work.
The wait is finally over! A stream of Tomahawk’s (Faith No More, The Jesus Lizard, etc) upcoming record, Oddfellows, is now available over at Spin.com. The record is stripped down, heavy and quirky in all the right places, and oh so satisfying. The album officially comes out on the 29th but you can spoil it for yourself now! Listen to this eccentric masterpiece ASAP.
It looks like an electronic duo by the name of Synchronice have released their dubstep remix of Faith No More’s classic song, “Epic”. The track appears on their new remix EP, Just Because, which can be downloaded here. I personally do not like the Americanized dubstep (Brostep as some call it ) so after the first few wobble bass drops I grew tired of listening to it. It does have some cool sounding effects here and there but overall it’s the same old trite Brostep that I have grown to despise. But that’s just me. Check it out below and tell me what you think.
Tomahawk (Faith No More, ex-Jesus Lizard, etc) has released the first single from their upcoming record Oddfellows, which will see a release date on January 29th. The track is called “Stone Letter” and it is a pretty catchy, poppy rock song featuring Mike Patton’s more lower vocal work. I was hoping for something with a little more zest but this is good for what it is. The 7″ pressing of the single will be released on November 23rd as a part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday event and a digital single will follow on December 4th. Check out the track below.
Revocation have an unreleased song from the Chaos of Forms sessions streaming at Ultimate Guitar. The song in question is actually a cover of the classic Faith No More song, “Surprise! You’re Dead!”. It’s a pretty sweet rendition of the song but obviously you can never out do Mike Patton. Follow the link above to listen to the cover and listen to the original below.
