Faith No More on their future: ‘We don’t have a plan after this tour or this record’

Band released new album 'Sol Invictus' earlier this month

Faith No More have revealed that they do not know if they will record another album after their latest was released earlier this year.

The US metal band released ‘Sol Invictus’ in May and will tour the record, including a date at Download Festival in June. However, in a new interview frontman Mike Patton admitted that there is no long term plan for Faith No More and that none of the members know what will come next.

“An old man only looks to the next day,” the 47-year-old Patton said. “We’re old men. So what you do is, you look to the next day or the next plan, and, honestly, we don’t have a plan after this tour or this record.”

Bass player Bill Gould also touched on the subject of the band’s age, comparing them to an older actress. “Sure, her body’s getting a little older, but she’s not afraid to show it; she’s still sexy,” Billboard quotes him as saying. “When you’re younger and you’re insecure, in a way you don’t have the mojo, the juice, you know.”

‘Sol Invictus’ is Faith No More’s first album since 1997’s ‘Album Of The Year’. The album was recorded in the band’s own studio in Oakland, California and was released on their own imprint, Reclamation Records.

Having split in 1998, Faith No More reformed in 2009 and have since toured the world extensively.

In addition to the Download Festival date, Faith No More also play two gigs in the UK in June. They’ll play Glasgow Academy on June 14 and London Roundhouse on June 17.

Faith No More’s UK tour dates are as follows:

Download Festival (June 13)
Glasgow Academy (14)
London Roundhouse (17)
