Faith No More appeared on US late-night show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (May 13), performing two tracks.
The band prepare to release their new album ‘Sol Invictus’ next week (May 18), their first LP since 1997’s ‘Album Of The Year’. The album 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.
