Faith No More have played a new track live.
The band recently announced the release of a new album, ‘Sol Invictus’, playing this new cut – thought to be called ‘Cone Of Shame’ – at a gig in Tokyo. Watch below.
Faith No More’s first LP since 1997’s ‘Album Of The Year’, ‘Sol Invictus’ will be released on May 19 and was recorded in the band’s own studio in Oakland, California. It will be released on their own imprint, Reclamation Records, and distributed by frontman Mike Patton’s label, Ipecac Recordings.
The album release will be preceded by a single, ‘Superhero’. The band will put out 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 was released for Record Store Day’s Black Friday in November of last year.
Faith No More have also 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 will air 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 – who produced the album – discussed the songs which will make up their first album in 18 years.
Having split in 1998, Faith No More reformed in 2009 and have since toured the world extensively.
