Faith No More debut two new songs at Hyde Park show

Faith No More debuted two new songs at their Hyde Park show yesterday (July 4).

The band sparked rumours that they were working on new music by tweeting that it was “time to get a little creative” back in May. Faith No More split in 1998 but reformed in 2009 and have been playing reunion shows since. However, there has been no new music since 1997’s ‘Album of the Year’, which was their sixth LP.

Faith No More played London’s Hyde Park on a bill alongside Black Sabbath, Soundgarden and Motorhead, as part of the Barclaycard British Summer Time event. Click below to watch crowd-shot footage of the new material, via Consequence of Sound.

Back in May the band posted their first ever tweet announcing their headline set at this summer’s Open’er Festival in Gdynia, Poland, which takes place tonight (July 5). Their next tweet prompted fans to guess that the band might be working on new material, as they said it was “time to get a little creative”.

“Hey! Stay tuned for more Tweets from Twats!!! The reunion thing was fun, but now it’s time to get a little creative,” tweeted Faith No More on May 31 of this year.
