Faith No More have announced the release of a new single, called ‘Superhero’.

The band will release the track on 7-inch on March 17, with a digital release to follow on March 31. The band debuted the song during a show at Hyde Park in July 2014. It comes after ‘Motherfucker’, which came out for Record Store Day’s Black Friday in November of last year.

Faith No More have also just announced a run of US tour dates, which will take place in April and May ahead of their appearance at Download Festival in June. The band are thought to be airing new material at the upcoming shows.

Speaking last year, the band revealed their new material is influenced by The Cramps, Link Wray and Siouxsie And The Banshees. Bass player Bill Gould discussed the songs which will make up their first album in 18 years. The LP, which is yet to be titled, is due for release in April.

Having split in 1998, Faith No More reformed in 2009 and have since toured the world extensively. Their new record will be the band’s first since 1997’s ‘Album Of The Year’. Produced by Gould, it will be released on their own imprint, Reclamation Records, and distributed by frontman Mike Patton’s label, Ipecac Recordings.
