Last year, keyboardist Roddy Bottum said that he had been making new music with his Faith No More bandmates Mike Bordin and Billy Gould.

“I will periodically go to San Francisco and make music with those guys,” he told The Ring, The Cage, And The Stage. “What we do is a really special, unique thing that we kind of share — especially like me and Mike Bordin and Billy.

“We were super young — we were, like, 18 [or] 19 years old — when we started making music, so we kind of get in the room and we have a language that speaks really loud and really clear, at least to the three of us. I mean, where it goes is questionable, but we have sort of a language that’s kind of undeniable in a really sort of family sense.”

Chuck Mosley, who sang on Faith No More’s first two albums, died in November 2017 “due to the disease of addiction,” according to a statement from his family. He was 57.
