Faith No More announce their last gig

Band will close their reunion tour in Chile before splitting for good

Faith No More announce their last gig
Faith No More have announced plans to play their final gig in Chile.

The band reformed for a series of UK and European festival dates in 2009 – 11 years after they first split in 1998 – although the line-up did not include guitarist Jim Martin, who left the band in 1993.

However keyboardist Roddy Bottum confirmed the band will play their final gig in Chile before splitting, on his Twitter page. "It's true, we're giving Santiago [Bicentenário de la Florida] what they've asked for. We're wrapping up the FNM reunited tour in Santiago, Chile on December 5!!!!" he tweeted.

Although plans were initially in the pipeline to record a new album, Bottum said the gig will mark the end of the band.

"In my opinion recording an album was a great idea," he told Chile's Terra.cl website. "The balance was good because we know each other well. But things were complicated – it was very strange to return after a decade.

"When we decided to get together, it was to reconnect and relive something we had in common. It was very important to us – but doing these shows was the only thing we were going to do."
