It will be released for Record Store Day's Black Friday on November 28
Faith No More are streaming their new song ‘Motherfucker’.
Listen to the track at Rolling Stone. It will be released on seven-inch on November 28 and limited to 5,000 copies as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday. The band debuted the song during a show at Hyde Park this July.
Speaking about the song, keyboardist Roddy Bottum commented: “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.”
The band recently 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 released in April 2015 and will be marked by a US tour.
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.
